Of course, for those still wishing to re-join (and then come to the events!), the link to send subs is below. Just a reminder that this will automatically set up an annually recurring 20 pound subscription:
Alternatively existing staff members can renew their subscription by completing the standing order mandate which can be downloaded here , either by returning to your bank or quoting the details to set up your subscription through online banking.
I attach the menu details and booking form for the SCR Burns' Supper on Friday 28th January, 6.45 for 7.15 pm.
According to Government guidelines at present, the catering by University Events may go ahead as in previous years. However, we do have to reach a minimum of 30 guests for the event to be viable.
So I would ask people to return their booking forms as quickly as possible, and in any case by Wednesday 19th January. The price, which includes a dram of whisky is £34 per person, the same as in 2020.
I am very pleased to announce that Angela McCully-Jackson will be addressing the haggis, and that Jim Fraser will be in attendance again with his bagpipes!
Dress code: Highland dress, dinner jacket or lounge suit as preferred!
Note that SCR members receive a 10% discount on lunches served in in the SCR Bar & UCR (in collaboration with Keele Hall Catering) when using a Keelecard. This is in place of the standard staff card discount of 5%.
The draw can be downloaded here.
The draw and results of the 2013/14 Chess Championship of the SCR, concluded in early 2015, appears here.
Winner 2014: John Staniforth - congratulations to our new Champion. (This competition took until 2015 to complete, through no fault of the finalists.)
We are delighted that, as part of the agreement, existing SCR services and facilities were safeguarded with a 10% discount on all the meals for our members, on use of a Keele card to pay for the meal. Cards can currently be charged with money in Chancellor's Building, or online. A sample menu is attached, and under our Constitution temporary membership is available for others when buying from this range.
We hope you'll agree that this is an ideal location for staff and SCR members to meet for lunch with colleagues and friends, and that it is also a great opportunity to raise awareness of the SCR itself. Food is served in both the Bar and the Common Room.
Regards, Chris Adams, Chairman
As well as a written description and a map for each of the walks, John has also provided an introduction describing the area covered, and a handy section on the geological background and scenery to be experienced.
As he says, the descriptions were correct at the time of writing (2008), and small changes in availability of pubs and footpaths may subsequently occur. Users should of course take this into account.
