Balsam Bashing Challenge

We will be holding a fun Balsam Bashing Challenge on 23rd June from 1-4.30pm where teams of volunteers will be competing against each other to pull up Himalayan Balsam plants along the banks of Canley Brook. The team with the biggest pile at the end will win Warwick Volunteers goodie bags including branded t-shirts, water bottles and much more!!

Himalayan Balsam is an invasive plant that grows rapidly in tall dense colonies by brooks and rivers. It has large leaves that block sunlight, causing native plant species to die. When Himalayan Balsam dominates the bankside, biodiversity is reduced. With fewer plant species, the brook supports less wildlife, endangering creatures like the fluffy water vole.

Warwick Careers Society 2021/2022 Exec Recruitment

Warwick Careers Society has re-established in 2020 and aims to support students throughout the journey of career planning which can be overwhelming. Our goal is to bring visibility to not so well-known careers and to help students understand more about the world and themselves when exploring. Over the past year, we have organised one of the biggest career conferences, regular CV and cover letter workshops along with a series of podcasts. While continuing these events, we will also introduce more exciting programmes for the upcoming year and are looking for passionate students to join us and grow with the society.
