MCR Gazette / Easter Week 7

As May Week approaches, don’t forget that there are also several garden parties going on in the next few weeks. These are often a great inexpensive alternative (or addition) to the May Balls. The Tab has a good summary of what is on offer. We also have our rowers in action in the May Bumps this week, and our Guest Night coming up on June 22nd.

Have a serene week!
