The Phantom (Flag) Menace…

This fine May morning, Keble’s Porters’ Lodge was caught flying the colours of the Jolly Roger. The perpetrators of this tomfoolery have yet to be apprehended by the College authorities but the JCR would like to give a salute to these brave, free souls.

If you managed to snap a shot of the event then the JCR and the Keble archivist would be most grateful if you would (in the strictest confidence) drop the JCR President a copy of the picture (either by pidge or email: for the sake of preserving this fine example of Keble highjinks.

Happy May Day Keble! 

JCR Rent Survey

This Trinity term, as every year, members of your JCR and MCR committees will be negotiating with college on your behalf to ensure fair accommodation prices for the upcoming year. Before we begin, we’d like to hear your opinion and get an an overview over a few empirical facts. The success of the Rent Negotiation is reliant on your support and we’d greatly appreciate if you took a few minutes to complete this survey:


All of your answers are confidential and no-one can identify which submissions were submitted by which individual. Over the next few weeks (and during tomorrow’s JCR meeting!) we will keep you informed about each stage of the process give you plenty of opportunity for feedback and discussion. If you have any questions or suggestions, feel free to contact the members of the negotiation team.

Free Pimms and summery snacks for all who attend!

Croquet Temporarily Suspended

The use of the quads for croquet is currently suspended. 

BIJxEv9CIAAxBcHThe quads took a bit of a battering this winter and, because of the nice weather this week and subsequent use, they are in need of some intense TLC.

Pusey Quad and Hayward Quad are still open to use as per normal (Pusey: No walking across, no playing on, but sitting or lying on it is permitted. Hayward: Enjoy, but no ball sports) but please refrain from playing croquet on any of them.

If, however, you have a cuppers match or are a cuppers captain hoping to do some training please contact Adrian Roche (Head Gardner:; 07817 863841) to seek his permission to play on the quads.

Hopefully this will just be a short term fix while the grass has time to get back into fighting shape.

At least the weather is not taunting us about it!
