Editor’s Note, Issue 10 (Christmas Issue)

Well, that went fast didn’t it?

The first semester is almost at an end. Many of you will be studying abroad next year, beginning a whole new chapter in your university life. Looking back now I wish I had been more active and had spent six months overseas. You’ll be back next September with stories to tell and new friends made.

We here at Mancunion Towers will be saying some fond farewells to some of our team. Phoebe Chambre, one of our brilliant Arts editors will be jetting off to Vancouver, while Patrick Madden, one half of our super dedicated Sports editorial team will be spending half a year in Australia.

I hope you two have a great time and return with hilarious suntans. Canada isn’t known for its tropical climate but who knows, anything is possible!

So, what do we have in store for you this week?

The music team have done battle to find the 11 best albums of 2011, along with the year’s highlights. Turn to page 20 to find out who made it to the top of the list.

The law requires that we publish a recipe for Christmas dinner (on pain of death!), so go to page 26 to see how to put on an ace festive meal for you and your housemates. Why not have a go at whipping up some mulled wine. We’ve got it covered here.

So there we have it, our last issue of the year. We hope you’ve enjoyed reading our humble rag this first semester. If you would like to get involved putting it together please do get in touch. We are always looking for contributors, both young and old, undergrad and post grad alike. Look out for our special recruitment event happening at the start of next semester.

For those of you with exams in January, I wish you all the best of luck.

Above all, enjoy yourselves over the festive period.

Now, I’m off for an eggnog.
