A busy few days on the road in preparation for the MU’s involvement in the NEU Conference at Harrogate. Mark and I drove to Warminster on Thursday to collect our stand furniture from Neil Davies, our long-term stand installer, before organising and loading the promo and merchandise at HQ in Snowsfields.
I then took to the A1 on Saturday, arriving at Harrogate in the late afternoon. Sunday morning was spent setting up our stand at the excellent Convention Centre and meeting up with our National Organiser for Education, Chris Walters, plus colleague Rose Delcour-Min. The MU was hosting a fringe event plus a joint MU/NEU motion was to be the first heard – notable moment.
With everything in order and ready for the Conference, which was set to kick off this morning, I returned to London down the M1 in welcome sunshine.
