With registration and Freshers having gone very well, we continue to organise events (in-person and online), and further our work in areas concerning student representation. We also continue to look after quarantining students, and a personal highlight for me has been getting to know more and more new students - always happy to have coffee or go for a walk with anyone. I encourage you to come to the bar in the evenings - it is important that we support our safe and friendly spaces on campus

Recovering the spirit of freedom is a big challenge for the 2020s. Where unrestricted inquiry, free expression, and open debate were once viewed as central to thriving democracies and to university life, today such values are often held in low regard. This seminar series is an opportunity to explore some of the core ideals and new limits to freedom. Each session comprises a short introductory talk followed by open discussion on the issues raised.

We're now almost at the end of our Freshers Fortnight. Our COVID-Secure events have all been incredibly well attended and enjoyed by all, whilst also ensuring that everybody was safe and comfortable. We've gone through many masks, lots of hand sanitiser and tonnes of blue gloves.
Also, please make sure to check through to the Community Pledge and sign it if you haven't already.

My eagerness to help and my fondness for the BSU has meant that I have the opportunity to continue as BSU President until the end of my studies. It will certainly be something I will be sad to say goodbye to once I leave, and will continue to look back on for years to come. It has been a pleasure to represent sport at this University, and I hope I can continue to do a good job for the next few months!

We are now two weeks into the term, and have held two successful and safe in-person events (a picnic, and a games and movie night), alongside several online events. The SU team is available for face-to-face meeting/walks/lunch catch ups, as well as digital meetings. The bar is also open - check the OTM Facebook page for details. We are trying our best to bring our beautiful campus back to life :)

As part of 'Buckingham's Climate Action Plan', the Town Council have installed a new drinking water fountain for refilling bottles in Chandos Park. The Council hope that the new installation will help reduce the plastic waste produced by the town and provide a new service for its residents. The fountain, located opposite the tennis courts, is the first water refill station to be installed in Buckingham.

With most students having finished exams, it is important to look back and celebrate how resilient we have been, how well we have adapted to the new exam format, and to thank all the staff for their help and support. I have continued passing your feedback onto the Quality Assurance Office.
