Maintain the focus on Refreshers’ Week, but expand the range of student involvement possible

I have established a Refreshers’ working group which is in the early planning stages of delivering a small-scale Freshers’ Week in January. This will be aimed at the new intake of students in January as well as those students who may not have signed up for societies during September. This week will involve the promotion of university and Guild departments as well as commercial and society stalls.
