Society Spotlight: Friendly Runners’ Club

The Broad’s Society Spotlight’s are regular articles highlighting the societies of UEA – open to any and every club and society at the university. If you want your club or society spotlighted just send us a quick message and we’ll give you all the information you need!

The Friendly Runners’ Club is an all-inclusive running society for people of all abilities. Established in 2016, we place emphasis on creating a friendly, social environment for people to improve their fitness. We have three runs a week: the beginners run, the 5km and the 8km. For those looking to improve their running times, we also attend the Eaton Park Parkrun every second Saturday. The Parkrun is a volunteer-organised 5km race where you can try and beat your personal best! We’ll usually go for a coffee afterwards as well, so we can start the weekend refreshed and energised! We’re not just about running though. We’re working to organise socials throughout the year, including bar nights and quizzes! There’s so much going on in the society and we have much more to announce! Continue reading Society Spotlight: Friendly Runners’ Club

How to Layer: Transitioning From Summer to Autumn

By Elizabeth Wigley

That time of the year is back again – you step outside and want to put on a million more layers, but by the time you’ve reached campus you start to hate whoever thought up the concept of clothes.

The answer? Layering. This doesn’t have to mean coats, scarves, hats and gloves, oh no. This is an invitation to wear shirts on t-shirts on bralettes; the possibilities are endless, really. Continue reading How to Layer: Transitioning From Summer to Autumn

What I learned from solo travelling

by Rachel Glaves 

Travelling is something special that everyone should experience. Solo travelling around Europe (Amsterdam, Rome, Athens and Crete) for two weeks was without a doubt the best thing I have ever done. I am a newcomer and therefore no expert when it comes to solo travelling, but I definitely learned and gained a thing or two from my experience. Continue reading What I learned from solo travelling

Society Spotlight: UEA Marrow

The Broad’s Society Spotlight’s are regular articles highlighting the societies of UEA – open to any and every club and society at the university. If you want your club or society spotlighted just send us a quick message and we’ll give you all the information you need!

Hi, I’m Louise and this is how I’ve got one step closer to becoming a lifesaver.

A year ago, my friend and now President Euan co-founded the society UEA Marrow for the charity Anthony Nolan. Before I explain what the charity is, I’d like to explain why I joined. I didn’t know what the charity was or what they did, but quite simply after hearing Euan’s personal experience with the charity I was inspired to help. Continue reading Society Spotlight: UEA Marrow

If you’re not excited already (I for one was convinced at the word ‘dinosaurs’), read on, and you will find a reason… Continue reading Dinosaurs, Astronauts, and Gin: Why You Should go to This Year’s Norwich Science Festival

The Guide to a Norwich Night out

By Cassie Waters.

When starting to explore the city it can be hard to know where to begin. The LCR has a lot going for it but as Freshers Week draws to an end the time has come to start exploring all Norwich has to offer. So as a seasoned Norwich drinker I have decided to offer up some help. Remember those Goosebumps books you read as a child? The ones which allow you to decide the plot, depending on what page you choose to turn to? This guide is kind of like that. Imagine you’re on a night out, at each step you will be asked a question about what you want to do and the kind of night you would like to have? From chilling in a bar to clubbing, no matter what your budget I should have you covered! So off you go on your drunken journey, have a drink on me. Continue reading The Guide to a Norwich Night out

Easy Freshers Recipes: Paella

by Luke Farnish

I sometimes refer to this as a ‘notella’ as unlike many other  recipes for paella, it does not contain chicken. This is a recipe that is adaptable to a vegetarian diet if required. Equally, any hard vegetables can be used in exchange of the vegetables listed below. Please note, if you wish to include chicken or uncooked seafood in this you will need to precook these. Put half in the fridge and it should be fine for around one to two days (but no longer as you’ll be reheating something that’s been frozen).
