OXFORD UNIVERSITY CONSERVATIVE ASSOCIATION

TERMCARD HILARY 2020


PRESIDENT’S WELCOME

In this sombre time of year when Christmas trees lie slumped on pavements and many try to atone for festive excess with a vow of teetotalism, OUCA has plenty to offer. Our weekly Port & Policy returns to St Giles’ Church Hall on Sunday evenings and promises lots of spirited fun. Anyone with ideas to suggest for debate motions should keep an eye out for a link in our weekly emails. An exciting range of speakers will be joining us in Oxford, with highlights including veteran eurosceptic Daniel Hannan, party chairman James Cleverly, and Thatcher biographer Charles Moore. Our speaker events are free and open to all. Our social calendar features much-loved classics such as Poker Night and Pub Quiz as well as some innovations — what better way to celebrate the crumbling of Labour’s Red Wall than a crewdate with Northerners Society? There are plenty of other ways to get involved: we will be organising sandwich runs to help the homeless population of Oxford, welcoming contributions to our revitalised blog, and trialling telecanvassing as a new method of campaigning. Finally, stay tuned for details of our Termly Dinner — due to take place in Eighth Week, this promises to be a splendid celebration of the end of term. Marcus Walford Lady Margaret Hall president@ouconservatives.co.uk
