Meow meow Christopher Poel A M ESSAGE FROM THE C HAIRMAN 2 It is a great pleasure for me to be able to preside over the Association in the Easter Term. Cambridge is at its most beautiful at this time of year, and I have endeavoured to put together a programme of events that will provide the maximum amount of enjoyment for all members. Not only are there two excellent speakers and our usual social events planned, there will be two Easter-specific events that are always spectacular; the Annual Punting trip, complete with champagne and strawberries, and the decadent May Week Garden Party. CUCA will be a refuge for every student tired of the daily grind and in need of good company and refreshment! If that isn’t a good manifesto, I don’t know what is!
