CUUNA Society Squash

Date: 9:15pm Mon 28 Oct

Venue: Las Iguanas on Quayside (near Bridge Street)

The CUUNA squash will now be taking place directly after Monday’s debating session, when we will be heading down the road to enjoy 2 for 1 cocktails at Las Iguanas. This is the perfect opportunity to get to know both the committee members and each other better, particularly if you are interested in running for a committee position at the end of this term. It would be great to see a good crowd there!
