Notts Winter Games ’15

The struggle was real.

Meeting at 6:30am, that is.

The weather was cold and terribly rainy for most of the day (what’s new?) but we made it through!

This year, we sent in teams/players for football, captains ball, frisbee, badminton (singles & doubles) and for the first time, a netball team!

Winning wasn’t our priority but more importantly, having fun with our fellow Singapore Society members and Singaporean friends from other unis!

After all, as Mary Lou Retton once said, “A trophy carries dust. Memories last forever.” But I guess we get to keep both then 😉

For more photos of our teams/players in action, click here!

Cycling at the Peaks!

Last Saturday, we headed out of Sheffield to the nearby Peak District for some riding fun with our members and their friends from other UK universities!

Despite the heavy rain, we cycled along the Upper Derwent Valley and even did a bit of hiking before stopping for a picnic lunch.

Amidst the beautiful scenery, we couldn’t help but stop for numerous photo shots along the way! More photos are on our Facebook page so go ahead and check that out.

Patriotism at its best 😉

Thanks for cycling and getting muddy with us! We couldn’t have had a successful event without you.

With love,

Easter Eggstravaganza!

Chocolate, bunnies and hidden eggs. These are just a few of the things that probably spring to mind when you think of Easter. For our Easter Dinner this year, we decided to combine all of these elements, and more!

20 hungry Singaporeans (a deadly combination) made their way to Crosspool Tavern on the 4th of April for the most awesome -all-you-can-eat English traditional roast buffet. Hand carved roast beef, gamon, crispy yorkshire puds and cauliflower cheese were just some of the many things that filled our tummies that night.

And of course, what’s easter without the chocolate eggs?? We placed chocolate eggs of different shapes and sizes into a glass jar and had everyone guess the number of eggs in the jar. The winner would walk away with the chocolate eggs and a free meal!

We hope that everyone who attended had a great time at the event and left with full bellies and a wide smile. And again, thanks for making the 13/14 committee’s first event a great success!
