The Hetherington Research Club is Closed

The Hetherington Research Club is Closed

One of the many student unions we have has bitten the dust. The Hetherington Research Club, Scotland’s only postgraduate club, has closed its doors and made the staff redundant. Apparently the “Club could no longer operate as a business legally, due to its debts.” One question: we keep hearing rumors about the Glasgow University Union being in debt. If that is the case, how are their doors still open? Just wondering.

There is a Facebook Group devoted to saving the Hetherington Research Club (with one of my photos as the group photo) and a public meeting on the issue on Monday in the Boyd Orr Building at 5.30pm.

Instead of listing the reasons for why the HRC closed its doors, I’ll direct you to an article on the subject in the most recent issue of the Glasgow University Guardian.
