On Thursday, 4 April 2019, the Branch held its first social event of 2019 - crazy golf at Mr Mulligan's. Luckily it was indoors, as the weather outside resembled a typhoon! A massive thank you to everyone who braved the weather and made the evening an enjoyable, and competitive, one!
The Bournemouth & District CILEx Branch Annual Quiz took place on 16 January 2019, and it was by all accounts a resounding success. In total, 16 teams from 9 different law firms competed for the accolade of being the brightest legal brains, and it was Coles Miller who edged victory on the night; congratulations to them!
Thank you to everyone who supported the evening, and in particular our sponsor Ash Elite: Specialist Legal Recruitment and those who gave to or participated in our charity raffle. Your generosity has helped us raise over £800 for our nominated charity Teddy20: Supporting children with cancer; our nominated charity for 2019.
The newly invigorated Bournemouth and District Branch held informal drinks events in November in both Bournemouth and Dorchester. The Branch covers a wide geographic area and were pleased to be supported by a variety of familiar faces, as well as lots of new faces. We are also pleased to have been joined by several members of the Bournemouth & District Law Society. The events were enjoyed by all and proved really positive in terms of planning the Branch's objectives for 2019. Ultimately, we want to be a Branch which works for our members. In order to achieve this, we need to know what you want and need from us.
Our next event will take place on 16 January, in Bournemouth, and will be a quiz in support of our nominated charity - Teddy 20. Fell details to be circulated shortly.
In the meantime - if any student require study support in the build up to the January exams, they should not hesitate to contact the Branch for support.
