Come and say hi at the conference

It's Saturday morning at Youthwork the conference in Southport and, for anyone who isn't up here, it's WINDY! Wow, I nearly got blown into the sea heading from the hotel to the conference centre.

We just finished the 'Early Day' pre-conference bit on schoolswork with a bunch of schools and youth workers from around the North. It was a great 24 hours and very cool to meet so many enthusiastic schools workers. The session we did on putting together assemblies was excellent: we had an hour to plan assemblies on 'remembrance day', 'world AIDS day', 'friendship' and 'peace' - exactly the kind of topics you get given by a school. The results were fantastic, so if you were there please post up any of the material that was mentioned. That story on Puma and Adidas was very good... not sure if it's written up anywhere?

Incredible people

It's Saturday afternoon, we're enjoying manning the stand and hanging out and looking forward to tonight's school disco. The highlight of this whole experience has definitely been the people we've met.
