This afternoon (Friday) the candidates in the upcoming Students’ Union sabbatical elections were announced.

The VP Education and Welfare position is the most contested of the four with five candidates. This comes after the current VP Education and Welfare, Shon Prebble, announced last week his intention not to rerun.

“I miss teaching too much” the 22 year old PGCE graduate explained on his Facebook page Monday.

Each of the four sabbatical roles will be contested with a satisfying total of twelve candidates throughout the whole election.

The nominated candidates are as follows:


Alex Thomson

Antony Butcher

VP Education and Welfare:

Martyn Curzey

Rhys Taylor

Monalisa Ofure Odibo

Nicola Cooke

Coreen Moore

VP Sport and Healthy Living:

The vote will take place between 9am Monday 4th March and 2pm Wednesday 6th March. Campaigning for the election will begin on Wednesday 27th February.
