Henry Williams is a recent graduate in Business Economics from Bangor Business School. He has been elected to serve as your VP for sport for the 2019-2020 Academic Year.

He is a local lad who grew up in Benllech on Anglesey before moving to Bangor for his teenage years. Henry is a clearing success story, after not achieving what he wanted in A-levels he chose to stay local and come to the Bangor University. After a successful campaign with the popular catch phrase ‘Here with Henry’, he was elected to be the president of the Athletic Union.

Henry is a keen rugby player and captained the Men’s Union team in his final year having played religiously throughout his three years at University. He is passing on his skills and knowledge learned from playing rugby by helping coach the Women’s Rugby Union team and aims to get them promoted at the end of the season. He lives and breathes all things sport.

As Vice President for Sports, Henry is focused on student welfare in sport, with the introduction of the AU Sports Therapy Clinic. As well as this he intends to increase the contact time between the AU and the 63 clubs by increasing the frequency of development meetings/drop ins to ensure progress is being made throughout the year by all clubs. As part of the AU becoming more visible Henry and the Sports Club Assistant Richard will be producing a miniseries each week where they try every sport on offer at the University and go head to head with each other. As a result of this all students should be seeing a lot more of Henry throughout the year.

For more information, you can contact Henry at, or by calling into the Students’ Union. He is happy to meet with any student from any club to ensure the AU is doing the most for you.

Katie has recently completed her degree in English Literature and Creative Writing. Throughout her time in Bangor she has been passionate about all aspects of Undeb Bangor, getting involved in lots of different Students’ Union activities, especially with Societies and Volunteering through the exec committees, the drama societies and RAG. Katie also founded the Literature Society and was very involved with the course rep system.

One of her top priorities is to ensure all student groups get equal recognition by working with the Exec Committees and the Media Societies to publicise the fantastic things our societies and volunteers do. Likewise, she wants to develop more of a community within Undeb Bangor Volunteering/Society Guild by getting more groups involved with the campaigns and to encourage collaborations. Furthermore, Katie wants to ensure that committee members and project leaders get more support, and to make sure that they all feel supported by the SU. Katie hopes to achieve this by visiting your societies and projects, focusing on welfare and ensuring that everyone feels represented.

Katie is really looking forward to working with you all and so excited to see what can be achieve together.
