Keble reverses ball accommodation decision following student pressure

first_imgThe organisational committee is split into a student section and a college working party, the latter of which was initially responsible for the decision to refuse onsite accommodation to students “for various logistical and safety reasons,” according to Edwin Peel, the chair of the working party. Initial concerns revolved around the cost of rooms outside college, the cheapest of which was priced at £50 – thus making it difficult for low-income students to attend. As the majority of the accommodation was located at Oxford Brookes, students also expressed worry that drunk students might be forced to walk to the site alone in a vulnerable state. She added that future balls outside term time should include an access officer, due to fears that “with such a quick turnover of students, it can be quite difficult to create long-lasting change, as when students leave, the accountability does so with them and instead we go back to square one with the new cohort.” Despite the success of student action, Al-Qaryooti expressed she was “disappointed that it took such pressure from the student body to actually make accessibility provisions and that such concerns from the student part of the committee were ignored when these decisions were initially made.” Rooms in college were originally priced at £43, but the ball committee has decided to subsidise the cost, reducing the price to £33. They will be allocated on a first-come-first-serve basis, although full bursary students will have their rooms automatically reserved. In an email to college members, ball executive Sam Edwards said 200 rooms would be initially made available on November 7, but that this was “the maximum number which can be confirmed at this stage,” as the college is yet to finalise academic requirements for students staying on for work in 9th week. center_img The college has also committed to offering heavily subsidised tickets to Moritz-Heyman scholars, meaning that they will be able to attend the ball at a cost of £50, which Al-Qaryooti lauded as an “extraordinary commitment to accessibility from Keble and should be followed by other ball committees.” Third-year student Hannah Al-Qaryooti, who was instrumental in proposing the motion and highlighting the accessibility concerns involved, said, “I am extremely happy that Keble have reversed their decision. It shows that they have listened to student concerns about accessibility.” Social Backgrounds Rep Adam Ferguson told Cherwell: “It is very encouraging to see that Keble is both aware of, and open to our suggestions as to how best support low-income students. Given a short amount of time and a tight schedule, the college acted remarkably quickly and have introduced an element of accessibility to the ball which will hopefully remain indefinitely into the future.” Keble College has reversed its decision to refuse students onsite accommodation during the commemoration ball on June 27, 2020. The move comes after students put substantial pressure on the organisational committee to secure rooms in college, citing access and welfare concerns which would particularly affect low-income students.last_img read more

His installation is Sunday.Submitted to Sumner Newscow — Calvary Lutheran Church in Wellington at 1300 North C will be celebrating the installation of William Wingfield as the new pastor this Sunday with a 3 p.m. service.Wingfield has moved to Wellington with his wife Vickie and youngest daughter, Vanessa, have moved to Wellington where he will start his first pastorship since graduating from Concordia Seminary in St. Louis.“I wanted to comfort people like the comfort I received from the Lord,” Wingfield said. “I think that is the greatest job in the world.”Wingfield worked at the department of music at Kansas State University in Manhattan. He then went into the seminary, where he graduated last spring. “I was brought up a Presbyterian, and wasn’t in church for awhile,” Wingfield said. “When I decided to return to my faith I was looking for a church. I was impressed by how up front the Lutheran-Missouri Synod Church is with their faith and what they believe in. The doctrine is so scriptural with its emphasis of salvation by faith without works. It’s a great gift to be able to preach that to others.”Wingfield will be replacing Pastor Michael Wolff, who accepted a call in Nebraska in June 2013.Follow us on Twitter.last_img read more

Clubs invited to host England championships

first_img England Golf is inviting clubs to put themselves forward to host national championships and tournaments.“We’d be delighted to hear from any club which is interested,” said James Crampton, the England Golf Championship Director. “Hosting an event is a great way for clubs to mark a special anniversary or to show off their course and become better known.”Among the clubs hosting 2015 events was Warwickshire’s Robin Hood Golf Club, which held their first national championship when they staged the English Senior Men’s County Championship – and they’d be happy to repeat the experience.“We wanted to raise the profile of the club,” said General Manager Martin Ward. “We had spent an enormous amount of money on the course and the greens and fairways had come on leaps and bounds. We felt the club was probably one of the best in the Midlands.“Ourselves, the green staff, the caterers, the bar staff, the pro and a lot of the members were very pleased and proud that the event took place – and the participants were very complimentary in their praise of the course. The word was spread very well!”Members supported the event as volunteers and those who wanted to play during the championship were able to take advantage of courtesy arrangements with other clubs in the county. “We satisfied all of the requests from everyone who wanted to play elsewhere,” said Martin.England Golf will soon start selecting venues for 2019 and is also filling the small number of remaining gaps for the 2017 and 2018 seasons. England Golf runs almost 50 events each year, ranging from competitions for handicap golfers to prestigious championships which attract international fields.

That’s my answer, always. I don’t like it. I love football how it is. It’s like that with the mistakes of the referee, with the aggression from the player sometimes.” the 27 year old Egyptian told in an interview with CNN.The Old Lady are currently at 2nd position on the league table, behind Carlo Ancelotti’s Napoli, who also secured 3 points, beating Fiorentina 4-3.

Powered by Firework Ah yes, its Zlatan Ibrahimović again who is making the headlines. Well, not exactly himself, but his boyhood club Malmö FF fans. Very, angry fans. SO angry in fact, they have defaced their superstar’s statue, because the Swedish superstar purchased stake in their sworn rival side Hammarby IF.Advertisement Image Courtesy: AEG/Philip O’ConnorAfter leaving Old Trafford in 2018, the 38 year old veteran spent two breathtaking seasons with LA Galaxy, scoring 52 goals in 56 appearances, recenrly announced on Twitter about his departure before the 2020 season, and return to the European continent.Although the former Inter Milan, PSG and FC Barcelona superstar’s next destination is being speculated, it is highly rumoured that the Sweden international will end up in his home country with Hammarby IF.Advertisement A couple of days ago, Zlatan posted a clip on his official Instagram, depicting his name on the kit of Hammarby, on the same day it was revealed that the forward has bought a quarter of stake in the club. Check it out below-Now, this has created a giant outrage in the Malmö FF fanbase, as the supporters were expecting the Himmelsblått youth academy graduate to return at the Stadion in Stockholm. But, Zlatan’s ongoing business with their Allsvenskan rivals is not received very well.The statue of the player, unveiled in October outside the Stadion has been attempted to set ablaze, with the face wrapped in plastic, and toilet seat cover on the statue’s right hand- these were the ways how the fans showed their despise towards their former favourite player.There were even reports of leaving fermented fish on the doorstep of Zlatan’s house in Stockholm, and ‘Judas’ written on the door.Surprisingly, the usual outspoken Zlatan himself is yet to make any comments on the matter. However, it is evident that Hammarby or not, his childhood club will now consider him a subject of abhorrence. Advertisementlast_img read more
