According to the rules of the University of Bristol Union, in order to be formally recognised as a University society, a group must gather 30 names of current UoB students who would be interested in participating in the potential society. The advantages of this recognition are wide-ranging and include, for example, the option to have a stall at FRESH, a place on the UBU website, and the possibility of (after two years of full-society status) funding from the Union. If you would be interested in joining a U8 society at Bristol, please sign the petition below; there is no obligation to sign up formally though, if you subsequently change your mind. If you\'d like to be added to our mailing list, please include your email address - your details won\'t be passed on to any third parties, so no need to worry about that. Thanks!
