Meetup - Merseyside IVC

Enhance your social life with the Merseyside Intervarsity Club. If you have moved into the area, change has altered old relationships or you just want something new, then the MIVC offers the opportunity to strike in a fresh direction. Meet us at our local events then go away for short breaks and longer holidays. Our members are friendly, caring and great fun.

What do we do? The answer is, ‘whatever you want’. The members put on the activities. If there is something you want to do, somewhere you wish to go, we help you to host the event of your choice and go with friends. We are linked to other Intervarsity Clubs and our members regularly go on inter-club outings. There are 41 IVCs in the UK, with nearly 4,000 members. Before you go further, take time to explore our coming and past events. You will see that we offer more than many other groups.

MIVC is long established with a core of dedicated members. Meetup provides our presence on the web. We take care over who becomes a full member. Members are expected to be reliable and to honour commitments. Our group is small and not for profit. Membership is £12 per year.

MIVC members tend to have professional qualifications. We are teachers, social workers, police and probation officers, and from the worlds of medicine, government and armed forces.

BIRD WATCHING WEEKEND ON THE NORFOLK COAST 
Meetup Fri 24 May 2019 
Location:   Cromer, Overstrand Road, Cromer, Norfolk
Time:   to Mon 27/May/2019
Dave Lawrence of London IVC invites you to join him and London IVC members in a bird watching weekend on the Norfolk coast. The event has become something of a fixture in the LIVC calendar, usually in October but for a change they are moving it to May, in the hope of good weather. The event is organised jointly with a North London nature conservation group.

We stay in accommodation in Cromer and visit the excellent bird watching sites along the Norfolk coast - a prime birding area. Cultural visits are also included. Some LIVC members and friends will be driving, so transport between reserves etc is available.

If you are interested please contact Dave asap so that accommodation can be sorted out.

From the Norfolk Birds web site:
"Its geographic location and wide diversity of habitats combine to make Norfolk one of the very best counties in Great Britain for bird watching – whatever the season. Whether its booming bitterns or sky-dancing marsh harriers over the reed beds of the north coast, wildfowl and waders wheeling over the immense mudflats of The Wash or the haunting calls of roosting cranes in the Broads, Norfolk can deliver a truly memorable wildlife experience all year round.

The county boasts a list of over 420 species, including some very rare resident species, breeding and winter visitors, passage migrants and many vagrants. It is one of the few counties in Britain where it is possible to see in excess of 100 bird species on any given day without too much effort. So it’s not surprising that a birdwatcher’s calendar is not complete without a visit to Norfolk and most visit many times during the year.

However, it's appeal is much broader than just birds, with over 100 miles of unspoilt coastline, habitats ranging from the dune slacks and marshes of Holkham to the arid heathland of the Brecks and a range of unusual or sought-after non-bird species, which include swallowtail butterflies in the Broads and the seal colony on Blakeney Point, Norfolk genuinely offers something for every interest."

For the organiser’s contact details and other confidential information, please,ask a committee member.

This is an IVC National Event. You must be a full (paid up) member of IVC to attend. If you are not a member do not contact the organisers. Speak with your nearest branch of IVC. Your nearest club is to be found at http://www.ivc.org.UK.


A WEEK AT THE EDINBURGH FESTIVAL 
Meetup Sat 10 Aug 2019 
Location:   University of Edinburgh, Darroch Court, Saint John's Hill, Edinburgh
Time:   to Sat 17/Aug/2019
Join us at the world's greatest entertainment festival. After a terrific week at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival in 2014, 2015, 2016, 2017 and 2018 we will return in 2019. We will stay in value for money, student accommodation close to the heart of the festival. We will help you navigate your way round the festival which is vast and can be overwhelming. We will organise shared visits to events and meals - or you can just do your own thing. Help will be provided with travel arrangements and prebooking of recommended events - but most events can be booked when you are there.

Contact Dave now for more details and to join the accommodation waiting list. We will book 40 rooms. This will cost a little over £200 for the week for your own room in a student flat which is basic but comfortable.

For the organiser’s contact details and other confidential information, please, ask a committee member.

This is an IVC National Event. You must be a full (paid up) member of IVC to attend. If you are not a member do not contact the organisers. Speak with your nearest branch of IVC. Your nearest club is to be found at http://www.ivc.org.UK.
