Hello again all, Matty here.
Well, it is out there. Our Welcome Week line up for 2016 should hopefully have reached you all by now and what a line up it is.
Massive is likely to be the main operative word I use throughout the majority of this blog.
Firstly, (MASSIVE) changes to our regular line up. We feel this year we have been able to provide a much more varied, enticing and diverse line up for you. With us holding back on some of the regular occurrences that seemed embedded in Edge Hill tradition, we have made room for a range of activities and events for you to take part in. Thus making this years Welcome Week that much more special, as opposed to any other ‘standard’ Edge Hill Students’ Union Welcome, of years gone by.
Next, (MASSIVE) events. As you may have seen in some of the media we sent out recently, we now have a number of BIG day time events. I think that this is one of the truly great (MASSIVE) additions to this years Welcome Week that has perhaps been called for more in the past.
I would like to start off with Monday Funday (a phrase many in the organisation appear to giggle at when spoken in my slightly mancunian twang). Beyond the obvious importance of the Welcome Fair, held every year, this Fun day is bound to be awesome (and MASSIVE). A huge (kind of MASSIVE) selection of inflatables, obstacle courses and activities to bring out your competitive edge. We have a number of (MASSIVE) night time events throughout welcome week, the most notable obviously the club nights. Who could not say it is a (MASSIVE) pleasure to have Radio 1 DJs Scott Mills and Chris Stark, along with artist Tinchy Stryder. Not forgetting our (MASSIVE) social night on Wednesday, as always normally the biggest night of the week.
And we couldn’t not give a (MASSIVE) mention to the Welcome Fair. As has been previously stated, this is perhaps the most important event in establishing your future at University and even life beyond University. Go along, ask questions and find out what you may want to be a part of. I came with an idea of one group I wanted to join and it has honestly changed my life, opened up so many doors and left a lasting (MASSIVE) impact with me, I am sure I will carry for the rest of my life.
(Massive) Changes to the bar, we have been busy over summer and actually created another new bottle bar in the quad. Many of you I know will be grateful for its impact on reducing congestion on those busy nights. Without revealing too much, here is a sneak preview of its early stages.
A new menu, with (MASSIVE) changes. We now offer a much bigger variety of both food and drink.
There has been plenty of planning taking place over the summer. I am actually really excited for it to start. I am ever so proud of what the new team are managing to achieve so early on.
MASSIVE changes, MASSIVE plans, MASSIVE acts, MASSIVE events, MASSIVE welcome.
Hope my blog this week has only been short and not too massive…
See you all soon,
Matt (EHSU President) x
