It’s Good to be Back…
It’s been 18 months since our last
publication of the witch, and since
then there’s been an endless list of
unbelievable events and successes.
The back end of last year alone saw
Pendle host an awesome Extrav as
well as us getting crowned sporting
champions after our 1st place
ranking in the Legends competition
and Carter Shield.
And that isn’t all! The year 201314 has seen Pendle’s achievements
linger. The great success that
Pendle had with the basement
party turned things around. If
someone said last year that Pendle
Bar would be taken off the blacklist
for closure, no one would have
believed them. But the basement
parties aren’t the only thing that
has turned things around for
Pendle. The success of ‘The Witch
Trials’, Movember month and
College Spirit week which saw
Pendle host battle of the bands all
helped the college to breathe a
new lease of life.
The fact that Pendle hosted the
most events last term is a
reflection of how hard last term’s
JCR worked. It’s hoped that the
amazing freshers week of 2013 has
encouraged the new freshers to
become more involved and use the
bar to its full potential. With the
changing of the JCR, is it also hoped
that they will carry on the
successes of their predecessors and
keep giving Pendle what they want.
More events and a bar that’s open.

Meet Your New JCR
Hi guys! I’m Rebekah Christon, President of Pendle College JCR. It’s my job to oversee the work that the
rest of the officers do, this is to ensure that we can provide yo with the best university experience
possible. I also participate on a university wide level, making sure Pendle has a political voice in the
bigger picture and standing up for the things that matter most to students. I truly believe Pendle
College is the best on campus, (yes I know, clichéd), and hopefully by the end of the year, you will too.
Hi I’m Chris Conn, and I’m your VP: Events. It’s my job to work with John and Cameron to
bring awesome events to Pendle College and to organise extrav at the end of the year. If
you’ve got any ideas of an event you want to see then feel free to give us any
Hi, I’m Katy Thomas and I’m your VP: Welfare and Community. I’m here if you need any
advice or just a quick chat about any anything worrying you. I will also be helping to organise
several awareness and action campaigns to promote and try to resolve social issues. I am
always free to help My office hour is Tuesday 1-2pm in the meeting room outside Jill’s.
Hi, my name is Charles, I’m the Chair of Pendle College, what that basically means is I chair the
JCR meetings and sort out the budget and spending for the college. Outside of the JCR I’m a 2nd
year Criminology student who likes Lord of The Rings a bit too much. If you have any questions at
any point, or just want to chill with a few beers, either contact me or stop me on campus, I’m hard
to miss; I’m the bald guy with the ginger beard.
Hi I'm Alice and I'm the new Pendle Women's Welfare! I work alongside the other welfare officers
to make sure that all Pendle students have the best experience possible through support and
organising campaigns. I consider myself to be an approachable and caring person who will give
my all to the role. If you have any problems big or small, my contact hour is 3pm on a Thursday,
but come and see me whenever just send me an email and I will organise a time for us to meet!
Hello there! I'm Dave and I'm your new men's welfare officer! I'll be available officially
between 3-4 Mondays in the meeting rooms (inside the porters) or as soon as possible if
that's no use! I'm an avid fan of Blackburn rovers, game of thrones, frank turner and play for
lacrosse for the university! I'm a light hearted approachable guy who has got your back!
Hi I'm Cameron, I study engineering and I'm an events officer on the JCR this year along with John
Janes. I aim to hopefully put on some brilliant events for everyone over the coming year and in a
nutshell, just make the whole thing an enjoyable experience for anyone involved! I love Lancaster both
for the uni and the place, the night life is a bit more tame compared to Newcastle, but eeeeverybody
loves a bit of Hustle on a Tuesday! I will admit though, Hustle does bad things to good people...
Hello people. My name is John Janes the second year Welshman studying Biochemistry.
I play pool and darts for both Pendle and the Uni in my spare time and my most
favourite place in the world in undoubtedly Hustle. I look forward to arranging events for
the coming year with the rest of the events team and I’m sure I’ll see you soon!
Hey Pendle College! My name is Lucy Williams and I’m one of your Media and Communications
officers for this year! That’s right, one of the editors of this magazine! (Hope you like it!) It’s also
my job to promote all the events that we run through posters and social media! I’m a second year
Mathematics student and I’m involved in societies such as the Rapper Sword Team and Pole
Fitness. My favourite thing about Lancaster is definitely our college system! #PendleForever
Hello you beautiful people of Pendle. I'm Dale Cooper, and as your Media and Comms officer I work alongside
Lucy to make sure you guys are in the know how about everything that's going on in Pendle. You'll regularly
see my posts on facebook and twitter and see me and Lucy bobbing around the quad putting up posters. If
you happen to see me around Pendle, don't be afraid to say hi! If you've got any ideas for designs, articles for
the witch or different ways of how we can run things, don't hesitate to send me an email.
Being Pendle’s Audio/Visual Technician is a role I’m really excited to have been chosen for. I have already had
great fun working with the new JCR and look forward to working with many more of the Pendle community,
particularly those who will be getting involved with events such as Pendle Live. Outside of my role on the JCR I
am a first year Marketing Management student, keen guitarist (watch out for the really grumpy guitar-playing
face, I can’t help it) and I also like to cycle, although laziness often gets in the way of that one!
Hi, I’m James Gaffney and I’m Pendle’s Education Officer, my job is to organise education
campaigns and voice the opinions of Pendle students at Academic Council meetings. I’m always
around Pendle, generally chilling in Pendle Sitting room. I’m part of the sailing club, and enjoy
going for the occasional run. I also cycle to uni every day – my beer fund can’t quite stretch to a
bus pass! I do enjoy the occasional drink, regularly heading to Elements on a Friday night!
My name is Michal Szulik, I'm your new International Officer. I'm a second year international student
from Poland. As International Officer I'll spread awareness and understanding of diversity, equality, and
culture by organising campaigns and events throughout the year. Apart from that I'm here to help all
international students with any problems they may have. I can be contacted by email or Facebook or
during my office hours in Pendle bar if you'd like to see me with any problem or just for a chat.
Hi i'm Josh, your current Democracy Officer. My job is to look after the democratic proceedings
within the college, as well as helping out across campus. It is my responsibility to let you know
what's going on democratically in the college and in the University in general, including what you
can vote in or even run for! I study Politics and History and am willing to have a chat about any of
your political concerns and queries, whether related to the college, local elections, or bigger!
Hey guys I’m Beth, I’m still your Women’s Sports Rep from July last year. My main role in the JCR
is to improve sport participation throughout Pendle. My hobbies consist of taking part in the
Pendle Pool and Table Tennis teams, Sword dancing and obviously being majorly photogenic. If
you want to take part in more sport, be that in Pendle or in a University team, no matter what skill
or abilities you have don’t hesitate to email me or give me a cheeky add on Facebook.
Could this be you? Pendle is looking for a new Men’s Sports Rep! If you think you’ve got
what it takes to work with the Women’s Sports Rep to increase sport participation in the
college then come along to the general meeting in the sitting room next Tuesday (4th
February). You will need to supply a short speech and then you will be elected by all
present college members. Good luck!
I’m Rebekah Christon, the newly elected President
of Pendle College. After being Events Officer last
year I decided to continue my involvement with the
student body of Pendle by running for a higher
position. This was motivated simply by my love of
the college and my desire to see it thrive. I know it
sounds a bit cheesy and clichéd but when it came
down to making the decision whether or not to run
for the position, there was no way I could just go
back to not being involved.
However I did have my reservations, mainly because I saw first-hand how much hard work
the previous President, James King dedicated. Part of me still has a few reservations about
the coming year; I’m expecting it to be demanding, time-consuming and energy-draining,
but ultimately incredibly rewarding and most definitely worth it.
Luckily I have a brilliant team of officers by my side to ensure we can succeed in achieving
our aims for the college. The officers have already been busy rebranding Pendle Live,
working on welfare campaigns, rereleasing ‘The Witch’ and generally putting their own
unique stamp on the various aspects their role relates to. Their sense of initiative makes my
job somewhat easier, and makes me excited for the possibilities of the coming year.
I hope to see a complete revival of Pendle College within the coming year; in strengthening
its image and identity we hope to inspire the students, ultimately increasing college spirit.
What we, as a JCR want to achieve over our time in
office is to have people be proud to be members of
the college, to actively admit that they love Pendle.
After all, involvement inspires involvement, and it is
for that reason that I want as many students as
possible to have a say in what happens within the
Introducing block reps allows us to do just this; one
representative for each block of freshers to meet
with me every couple of weeks and tell me
honestly what they like, dislike, and most
importantly what changes they want to see. Student participation is key to college success;
we can’t expect people to be passionate about something they have no say in. I’m really
looking forward to listening to what the student body thinks about the college, and I hope
that this will contribute towards making our college, the best.
Also along the line of strengthening college identity, the combination of events and welfare
is an imminent process; we want to make it evident that Pendle is inclusive and takes a
political stand for that which it believes. With such a diverse selection of students, equality
is vital in Pendle, and I know the welfare officers have some fantastic ideas for campaigns to
illustrate this. Promoting college image would also mean increasing the professionalism of
events, whether that is through publication, involvement of societies, visual or audio
documentation, the addition of food or drinks offers, or just by making sure bar opening
times and regularity of events is consistent. This is a huge aim, but I and all the officers in
Pendle JCR will continue to work hard to ensure we can achieve it.
Finally, thank you all for voting in the elections, you really have picked an amazing selection
of officers. We look forward to hearing your ideas about the college, and to seeing you at
bigger and better college and cross campus events. Have a great year, and take care.

What’s coming up in Pendle College
Pendle 16/01/2014 – ‘Under New Management’
Thursday 16th January was a day of firsts. It was the new JCR’s first Pendle
Live, marking the beginning of a planned regeneration of the event so that it
is further known campus-wide, increasing attendance and giving all
members of our college another reason to be proud to be Pendle. We also
saw two brand new acts, in the shape of Dale Cooper and Beth Lowe, both
different, both proving themselves to be confident, accomplished
Beth Lowe opened the evening with a series of upbeat, modern covers of
songs from artists such as One Direction and Jason Mraz, all of which were
well received by a large and appreciative audience. Beth’s voice suited her
song choices perfectly, and the introduction of the smooth tones of swing
singer Dale for the second act provided great contrast between the two.
Dale, a JCR member himself, treated us to covers of songs from some of the
best-loved male singers of all time, ranging from Frank Sinatra to Elvis
Presley and Michael Bublé. This was a difficult task as each of these singers
has a very distinct tone, but Dale handled them with style and charisma.
Finally, we welcomed The Immigrants to the stage. The combination of
soaring vocals and impressive guitar riffs was impressive throughout a
polished and seemingly effortless performance. The pair played a mixture of
covers and their own material. Overall the evening was a great success, and
provided a stable base upon which the event can be developed further.
Pendle 23/01/2014 – ‘Pendle Live Goes Mexican’
Yes, you read correctly. Last Thursday saw Pendle Bar turn a little bit like one of those Dorito’s adverts with the 5
men and their crazy green suits. Despite the best efforts of the JCR, however, they weren’t available (funny that), so
we had to settle for free food instead, which proved to be a great success. A huge turnout was rewarded with a
delicious chilli and Nacho’s, and as if that wasn’t enough, Lake Komo returned to the Pendle Live stage, bringing with
them more kit than you could shake a sombrero at.
With them, they brought two other bands, who both performed brilliantly. The first of these was Gritty Britain, who
define their genre as ‘Alco-pop’ (research shows this is a real thing, hopefully I’m not the only one to whom this is
news!!). The mix of rocky guitar riffs and clever, amusing lyrics quickly impressed, some clever vocal harmonies
added into the mix really showed off their talent.
Next up was Joe McCorriston and his band. Joe has performed previously for Pendle as a solo act, most notably at a
previous EXTRAV. The band complimented his skills well and the Bassist in particular caught the eye with his fancy
finger-work. Overall it was an enjoyable set, and we look forward to their next performance.
And then, Lake Komo returned. A favourite of many of the second and third years present, it was easy to understand
why from the moment they began playing. Fantastic singing from all four members, combined with musical talent
and songmanship culminated in a hugely impressive performance, creating a great atmosphere in the bar. One of
our favourite moments was when they were asked to be the first to sign Pendle Live’s very own guitar, which will be
present at all gigs from now on. Acts will be asked to sign it, providing the perfect demonstration of the diverse
range of acts that we have to perform, and giving the event its own piece of legacy.
For fun, they say, add a little Mexican…
Article by Chris Brown
In November of last year, our previous Pendle Men’s Welfare Officer Joe Jones successfully
ran the Movember campaign across the university. Here at the Witch we sat down for a chat
with Joe, to look back over the great month.
Q. Why did you choose to kick start the Movember campaign?
I decided on doing Movember as last year on campus it was popular; unfortunately last year it failed
to raise much money. I saw the opportunity to take Movember and revitalise it and let’s face it, who
doesn’t like growing a moustache? Most universities take part and run their own Movember
campaigns, so why not Lancaster. Above all it was a great choice as it concentrates on men’s health,
predominantly testicular and prostate cancer and mental health. Quite possibly the most shocking
statistic for me was “Men have a 14% higher risk of developing cancer than women and a 37% higher
risk of dying from it”, this is purely down to a lack of awareness and openness to talk as there is no
biological evidence why the percentages should be different.
Q. How much did Movember raise?
The target was to raise over £1000 for Movember, which I am pleased to say we smashed, raking in
£1,148. A big part of the thank you has to go to the men’s rugby union team, who beasted Movember
becoming the best Mo team and raising £499.
Q. What was your personal highlight of the month?
The highlight of the month for me was November 1st, the Movember launch night. The waxing of
body areas which probably should never be waxed, and which I’ve never before seen waxed, the
armpit springs to mind. The head shaving was also a highlight as seeing the oddly shaped bald heads
afterwards provided enough laughter for the month. But I think most of all was the support of the
people of Pendle in taking part and donating to the great cause.
Q. The best moustache in history?
For me it has to be Nigel Mansell, because of the similarity between his tash and eye brows. Look out
for the Movember campaign to return in our next academic year! Watch this space…
Interview by David Clucas
Interviewee: Joe Jones
BIG MO ON CAMPUS…
As we all know Movember is the time when men sport wielding and often impressive moustaches. It's the time
when November once again becomes Movember, a time when you could be forgiven for thinking you had been
transported right back to the 60’s, when facial hair was king.
“Men have a 14% higher risk of developing cancer than women and a 37% higher risk of dying from it”
This year saw Lancaster University taking part in the big moustache on campus, a competition between
Universities to see who can raise the most. Last year Lancaster University took part in Movember but the
campaign failed to make much money or gain publicity. This year was set to be different with Pendle College at
the forefront, revitalizing and putting a spin on things, ensuring that this year failure was not an option. The
college held several events and even from the opening night managed to raise a massive £260, pretty impressive
by anyone’s standards. The purpose of this opening night was to raise awareness and get the ball rolling, what
better way than waxing and shaving. Waxing body areas which probably should never be waxed, and which I’ve
never before seen waxed - the armpit springs to mind. The head shaving was also a highlight as seeing the oddly
shaped bald heads afterwards provided enough laughter for the month. The campaign was a cross campus event
with most colleges taking part and being run predominantly by the JCRs.
The target was to raise over £1000 for Movember, which I am pleased to say we smashed, raking in £1,148. A big
part of the thank you has to go to the men’s rugby union team, who beasted Movember becoming the best Mo
team and raising £499. Coming in second place were the “Lads” of the Lancaster University Theatre Group raising
£235, closely followed by the mighty Pendle College coming in a close third raising a whopping £209. Pendle
College also has the best Mo sister, that of our very own Liz Whitehouse who raised a monstrous £92, aided by
getting a tattoo for the cause. The best Mo bro bringing home a colossal £156 was that of Sachin “Farmer” Patel,
a member of the men’s rugby union team.
None of this could have happened without the hard work and help of the people involved. From the Lancaster
University Hip-Hop & Breakdance Society, LUMIS and the Comedy Club who all performed and help raise
awareness for Movember. We also had a photo booth on the closing ceremony event run by La Loupe Vintage
Photography who donated all their profits for the evening. A big thank you to Charles Calvert, James Gaffney and
Dale Cooper who all shaved their heads in aid of Movember. The biggest thank you has to go to Dale Cooper as
without his help, none of the above would have been possible. And finally but certainly not least, the people of
Pendle, the college who raised the most: Proving once again that we truly are the Venue of Legends’.
This year its set to be even bigger, with Dave Clucas becoming the new Ambassador for Lancaster University and
once again keeping the title in the Venue of Legends.

Your College Needs You
Pendle College is looking for a
new Men’s Sport’s Rep to join
this year’s JCR. If you think
that this is the position for
you then come along to the
General meeting next Tuesday!
Tuesday 6 February 6pm
Pendle Sitting Rooms
A cross campus event to celebrate
the Chinese New Year is held by all
the colleges and CSSA society. The
event will take place on the 2nd of
February in the Great and Minor hall.
The event will consist of two venues:
The first venue will be held in the
minor hall from 4-6:30pm,
consisting of a large number of
stalls for the event. The stalls will
have stuff like FREE FOOD, games,
KF Chinese Shop and many more…
The second venue will be held in the
Great Hall from 7-10pm, containing
a sitting arrangement for the 20
performances for the Chinese New
Year. A limited number of tickets
are available for the performance so
grab them fast from the information
stall from the first venue.
After the very first hearing of Jake Bugg’s debut, about a year ago, my first reaction was: “This is going
to be a new Bob Dylan!” I waited patiently for a new album watching Bugg getting more and more hype.
When at last Shangri La was released, I had some mixed feelings after first listening, and after a few, like
a true hater I said: “First one was better!”
Basically, songs on this album can be divided into two groups: actual good tracks and “space fillers”.
The contrast between them is so huge that it makes my ears hurt. What’s curious, the good ones reflect
the mood of the debut – these are energetic songs with really nice lyrics describing the state of
nowadays society (There is a beast and we all feed it, and Kingpin) or some radio number one hits
(Slumville Sunrise, Messed up Kids), or just some charming acoustic tunes (Pine Trees, Me and You).
Now, the second group are incredibly boring radio friendly songs with flat lyrics. A Song About Love, All
Your Reasons and Simple Pleasures are the best examples of this. The worst thing is that they are
unnecessarily prolonged by some boring instrumental parts. This all lays a responsibility on Jake Bugg to
do really good on his next record, to deserve the title of New Bob Dylan. Though some songs show that
he is on a good path, he still needs to work on it.
When it comes to the music itself, the record is dominated by the instruments that can be heard on
the debut – guitar, bass and drums. A change is that Bugg ditches acoustic guitar in favour of electric in
most of the songs. This is the whole set of instruments, except for little pinch of hammonds and strings
somewhere. Credits should go to really good guitar solos, which make the worst part of this record
I had a great hope about Jake Bugg. I expected him to be someone to appear on the music market not
giving a monkey’s about what it actually wants him to be and criticizing it in a neat and brilliant way in
his lyrics. Bugg’s new album is exactly like that. But only in some unsatisfying parts. Anyway, I am still a
huge supporter of him, as he’s a guy that’s got the potential to shake the foundations of the music
What made Shangri La only partially good? Was it because of a short (only a year!) interval between
debut and the second album that forced Bugg to write some space fillers? Too much fame for a young
man? Whatever it might be, I hope that on his third record Jake Bugg will show his finer side.

Pendle College Sports Fixtures
Pendle are currently holding fifth place in the university inter-college table tennis
league. Despite some challenging games in the first term, we managed to win
against a number of rival colleges! Our next two games will see us first hosting
Lonsdale in Pendle bar, before we head to Fylde the following week. Also
congratulation to Daniel Hulse, the winner of our most recent Pendle tournament
in week 1 and also a staple in Pendles solid team. Anyone is welcome to join
Pendle table tennis and all abilities are welcome. We meet Wednesday evenings
at 6, so come down whether you want to compete against other colleges or just
play with other Pendlers for fun!
Pendle A’s won against Bowland, Cartmel, Grizedale and Furness last term, finishing in joint third place
on goal difference with Bowland. This is the highest Pendle A’s have ever finished and we hope to
continue the winning streak through to this term.
Pendle A’s next game will be against Bowland on Friday 31st January 5 – 6pm. Please come down and
support, this game was very close last term so is guaranteed to be a good one. The Lonsdale game
has been rescheduled for Monday 3rd February 7 – 8pm after the game was cancelled due to a
mishap with the lighting on court.
*Please note that all results are taken from A Team Leagues.
The Carter Shield
Article by Beth Hart
Pendle are currently 3rd!
what is the carter shield?
For those of you that don’t know, the Carter Shield is an intercollege sporting event which takes part three Sundays in
every term. On these Sundays, students of Pendle meet at
12:30 at the bar and walk towards the sport centre to watch
and support the college or compete in a variety of unique
sports. These sports can range from dodge ball to korfball to
badminton and welcome all abilities to battle for the college’s
title. Last year, Pendle’s consistency and great turn out in al
l events of the Carter shield meant that we won 123 points
and along with it the Carter shield trophy in term 3. Due to our similar consistency last term we are high in the rankings and
there is every confidence that Pendle can win the Carter Shield twice in a row.
In week 4, Dodgeball kicked off the first of the carter shield events. The game consisted of 6 team
members on each side of the court and a ball collector from each team. Pendle entered the scene
with Sean Mooney, John Janes and Andrew Minzey throwing balls like pros and the rest of the
team attempting to remember the 5 D’s of dodgeball. As the games progressed we managed to
make it to the semi-final. This is when things got intense, Harvir Basra took the ultimate sacrifice
for Pendle as a ball hit his sensitive area, Dale Cooper was named the ‘bald guy’ (after he shaved
his head for charity) as he was called out and Alice Callaghan ended up fighting for the team on her
own. All in all great spirit was shown by all players including Lucy Williams and David Miller.
Position finished: 2nd
Man/Woman of the Match: Harvir Basrar
The next event was Uni Hock in week 6, this consisted of 5 members on each team, during one of
our first games unfortunately a ball slipped through David Miller’s grasp and into the goal. This left
us at the bottom of the league and with what seemed like no hope for recovery as none of the
other teams had lost a point. However, Pendle did not admit defeat and in our next game a penalty
was awarded to us. Katy Thomas lined up her puck and with an awesome feed from John Janes
Pendle was up 1-0. With persistent attacks from John Janes, Josh Harvey and David Miller,
consistent defence from Chris Conn and Katy Thomas and great support from Alice Callaghan and
Mia Harrison Pendle managed to secure a place in the semi-final. Unfortunately we were beaten by
Cartmel on the penalty shoot outs, although there were some great saves by Tom Walker in goal.
Position finished: 4th
Man/Woman of the Match: Katy Thomas
Volleyball drew the final Carter shield event to a close. The tournement started with Adrien Muller
and Bormir Kolev demonstrating their general volleyball expertise with their amazing smashing
abilities. Pendle was annihilating the competition and due to Filsan Tarsey and Katy Tomas’s
serving and Mike Logan and Chris Conns passing we were soon through to the semi-final.
Unfortunately competition was fierce and Pendle then lost against Fylde. However, in the fight for
third place, Adrien Muller’s consistant direction, Oli Reyes’s great blocking and David Miller’s and
Sean Mooney’s effort, Pendle manage to defeat Grizedale. With the first term events finished, we
are eager to start second term off with a bang and retain our championship from last year.
Position finished: 3rd
Man/Woman of the Match: Adrien Muller
