Message from VP Finance 

Dear All,

I wish you all a very happy new year and trust you got some R & R over the holiday season.

I have organised a minibus test to be held on 25th February 9am-2pm. If you would like any of your members to apply for this testplease email me no later than 5pm on Friday 11th February. This is the last test of the year and so it will be funded by the SU, unless your driver does not turn up on the day in which case your society will be expected to cover the £30 for the test slot.

Please let me know what year of study the proposed driver is in, the society(ies) they would drive for, their course, their age, confirm they have no points on their licence and have been driving for at least two years, and any additional information that may be pertinent - events the society is holding, how frequently, how far away, how close to train stations, how many other members have cars etc. Unfortunately there are only 10 spaces available so you may not be successful this time around.
