Kate Lewis (on behalf of Alex Blackwood)


I’ve been JRO for 2 years and Green Machine Manager. I attend all the committees. Manifesto point 1: rewrite the election rules. This needs to happen because of a change to the Devote system. * demonstrates knowledge of elections software * . Manifesto point 2: Create a document that outlines all the positions.




Method 1 shpeel


Kate Lewis (on behalf of Jack Stevens for Senior Frep)


I was a frep this year. I enjoyed it much and fulfilled the role thoroughly. I would put an emphasis on welfare in fresher’s week. Would introduce time at racecourse for sports. Emphasis on societies and freshers’ fair. Relevant to me because I felt that I was too slow to join them myself. Propose a 2nd meal in the week for those not on the meal deal. Lasting experiences open day and frapping, as well as disappointing rugby career.
