Shropshire had allocated 8 delegates and a space for our Executive member. The District Secretary has to attend . This was a chance to listen to the debates and contribute to arranging the direction of the Union. Members put their names forward to speak but only Jean Evenson was selected. A report will follow
Each delegate will be representing the District and will have a share of the district vote, so needs to be available for the whole conference, which is why we decided to have a gathering.
