Usual consideration for their neighbours, rubber stamped and the first we hear of it is after it is passed.


Any old excuse for a booze up and ridiculously high eardrum deafening noise, described as 'music'.

Nice idea but celebrations usually take place post match not "pre-match", depending on the outcome.

I hope that the college are not using their own funds on the event, bearing in mind their audit committee reported a deficit of over £2m earlier this year.
