The year has got off to a truly great start for CivSoc. Not only did they run a top notch stall at Freshers? Fair (some engineering department societies didn?t even turn up!) the customary ?Bridges? pub crawl proved as big a success as ever.
This year the route was slightly modified to make more time for the pubs and spend less time crawling, nevertheless the familiar sites of the Hungerford Bridge, Brunel statue and Millennium Bridge kept the more work orientated interested throughout the evening. Following another tradition, Jez, the vintage fire engine helped those early birds who set off from college thanks to pub crawl veteran John James.
A health contingent of first years joined second, third and fourth years from the start, with numbers picking up through the first few pubs as people got dinner before. Familiar faces of several graduates made a welcome return and added to the good spirited evening. By the last pub, the Green Man under 1 Poultry in the City of London, a strong core remained, completely overtaking the small pub.
The huge turn out of students and CivSoc officers is a good sign for the coming year, especially the International Trip, an event unrivalled by any departmental society at Imperial. More news on that will be coming in the next few weeks (see right).
