There once was a boy named Harry, born with a lightning scar...

So the ARU Harry Potter Society was awarded Society of the Year 2012-13 last night at the Clubs and Socs Ball and I cannot possibly express how proud I am of everyone who has been involved and supported us through this year. It's been an incredible opportunity and I'm genuinely honoured to have been able to share it with such an awesome group of Potterheads.

It really has been a crazy year and we've had our share of ups and downs, both difficult and truly magical moments. We have an amazing base of members and have had so much fun working with other Societies and the fantastic and ever-supportive SU. It's been a magical journey and I will be sad to say goodbye as the current Committee move on to future Wizarding adventures, but it's been an incredible experience and I've loved every moment of it.

So an immense and heartfelt 'thank you' to everyone who's given the Order of the Ruskin their time from that moment in that kitchen when we wondered if it would be possible, to the near-200 people signed up, to everyone who's attended our events and Pub Socials, and to you if you have stuck with the ARU Harry Potter Society until what is surely not the end, but can only be a bright and magical beginning.

And in the immortal words of Peeves: "We did it, we bashed them, wee Potter’s the one, and Voldy’s gone moldy, so now let’s have fun!"
