GIVE IT A


HELLO! Welcome to GIVE IT A GO! Part II! We absolutely loved sharing the first term of events with you, and it was brilliant that so many of you got involved with events across campus. We also LOVE that so many students were involved in the shaping of the events programme for the next few months, and we hope that there’s something for everyone! Whether you like it loud, quiet, crazy, tasty, crafty, skill-zy, relax-y, or you want to explore the world beyond the campus boundaries, this calendar takes you through all the events happening at Edge Hill until the end of May. We’re all about FEEDBACK so if you attend our events make sure you fill in our “I GAVE IT A GO!” cards, and DO pop in to our Activities Office, opposite the SU Bar entrance and tell us what you’d like to see next year - we’re always looking for ideas! … And remember to follow us on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram and Snapchat for the latest updates, pictures and videos! We’re looking forward to seeing you all very soon! Dan B, VP Activities
