Spring conference - welcome to Brum!

It's good we're having our spring conference in Birmingham. To the best of my knowledge, it's the first time we've had a national conference in Birmingham and delegates will notice there's a lot going on in the city.

The conference is coming at an important time as we prepare to sharpen our act for the coming local and London elections. There are lots of important internal decisions to be made - especially the General Secretary appointment - and I will be using the conference to discuss such issues with as many party members as possible.

Whilst I haven't had the opportunity to do too much research, good places for such consultation can be found along Gas Street - the old Birmingham canal, just over Broad Street from the BICS. There are a host of eateries and drinkeries but the Canalside (the former lock keepers cottage) looks very good - but beware its easy to get locked in the Gents! There is also a Tap and Spile which does real ale and a Jazz club on Paradise place.

Anyway, If you are at the conference, say hello, if not, then I'll be reporting on it next week.
