Meet the Team

Bath Time is the University of Bath’s student magazine, where we write and rant about local news, student issues, and all things pop-culture. During Freshers’, we provided daily coverage of events, providing a log of the week through bad puns and crass summaries, two things which won’t go amiss from the monthly edition of the magazine. As for the rest of the year, the team aims to publish some top-quality journalism, with emphasis on investigative projects and local and national news, as well as the smaller-scale things like the best places to cure a hangover, which Fresh flapjack is the best, and reviews of all things Bath.

Bath Time is available for free online.

The Team 

Editor-In-Chief – Darcey Stickley

Darcey is a final year Spanish and Politics Student, so get her talking about either of those things and you’ll never escape. Originally from Cambridge, she has a thing for pretty cities and the secrets they hold. As EIC, not only is she power hungry, she’s also a stickler for spelling, so if you spot any errors, let her know.

Deputy Editor (Print) – Cathi Westall

Cathi is doing a Master’s in International Relations and was also at Bath for her BA in French and Politics. Safe to say she is in denial about a) Brexit and b) adulthood. As one of the Deputy Editors, she’ll likely try to shoehorn terrible puns into headlines, so please intervene if this becomes unbearable. Most likely to: fall asleep on a night out and then miraculously resurrect (like Jesus); feel a bit faint if she goes 3 hours without eating (less like Jesus).

Deputy Editor (Online) – Matt Kemp

Having not realised how much work final year and a dissertation brings, Matt joins Bath Time as Deputy Editor, owning all things online. He has no qualifications but gets by on references to pop culture.

News and Comment Editor – Lucy Acheson

Obsessed with knitting, cats, tea and baking, Lucy is a grandmother in the making. She spends most of her time drinking hot chocolate at expensive coffee shops and asking her friends deep questions regarding the meaning of life. Rather than focusing on her Politics & IR degree, Lucy is looking forward to spending her second year at Bath writing news articles and attempting to convince people that she’s taller than 5’4. 

Features Editor – Leora Garling

Leo is a final year International Management with German student. Aside from reading and writing, she’s also into music and loves to sing and strum to jazzy tunes. When she’s not at the library working on an essay or catching up on a lecture, you’ll most probably find her in town at a pub quiz. Her infectious laugh makes her very hard to miss!

Lifestyle Editor – Chloé Granger

You will probably find Chloé nestled in Bath’s best brunch/café hotspots trying to take aesthetic photos whilst she allows her green-tea bag to brew indefinitely. Yes, she keeps her teabags in. Chloé is a proud FIMML student and when she isn’t muttering to herself in French pretending her heritage is Francophone, she enjoys satisfying her inner fashionista by watching fashion shows instead of her lectures, writing ridiculously long blog posts on the power of a statement handbag and unapologetically idolising Coco Chanel.

Sport Editor – Yasmin Western

Guaranteed to be in leggings and slides, Yasmin is a 2nd Year Politics and IR student and this year’s Sports Editor. She’s probably still having a crisis about the fact she can no longer blame everything on being a “silly fresh” and struggles to accept the fact that weightlifting is not a personality trait. Always sore and always hungry, she’s ready to bring the fire to Bath Time sports content; fuelled by iced coffee and her beverage themed Spotify playlists.

Design Editor – Andreea Dragoş

Andreea is a 5th year Architecture student (yes, it does take that long) with a desire to make her life even busier by joining every possible society whilst juggling with architectural models and rolls of tracing paper. She has an eye for detail and organising, her greatest example being her skill to organize food in the fridge like a game of Tetris. Her ideal day includes being at home, drawing and binge-watching TV series surrounded by puppies. If she’s not doing that, you’ll probably find her in the first row at a concert or a music festival. 

Publicity and Distribution Officer – Jemma Laver

On campus, if she’s not chilling in the SU, studying in the library (to finish her Management degree) or soaking in the rays by the lake – Jemma’s most probably scouting out the best secret study spot (don’t ask, she won’t tell you where the hidden gems are). Off campus it’s anyone’s guess, but she’s most probably on an adventure finding a hidden out of town pub. However, rest assured even with all this exploring, as distribution officer she will guarantee everyone gets their hands on the Bath Time.

That’s your 2020/2021 team!
