A big thank you to all those, MCR Committee and others, who provided such stellar help at the HalloCorn BOP On Saturday night. You made this an amazing night of dancing, disco, and costumes!  College and the MCR continue the Halloween and Bonfire season with a number of events this week.  Book for the Halloween and Bonfire Night Celebration on November 4 (details below) and join the MCR for pumpkin carving earlier in the week.

Results of the MCR Election will be announced tomorrow but there is still time to VOTE!  Polls close at 12 noon, Monday 30 October.  You will have received an email from your friendly Junior Dean with instructions on how you can do this. Don’t miss this opportunity to have your voice represented in college!

Your M(iddle)C(ommon)R(oom) President

We will be holding a ‘best pumpkin’ competition, there will be a prize for the winner. Food will be served buffet-style and there will be a cash bar (run by your friendly MCR!).
