A really good and enjoyable day yesterday at our Spring Conference with lots of great feedback. Delegates commented on the quality of the speakers and one delegate said it had inspired to stand for another four years. Thanks to our sponsors BHIB and Westcotec for the continued support and all the delegates who braved the rain on arrival.
