The weekend will be a great opportunity to meet like-minded Liberal Democrats from around the country. At the last count there are over 100 going, of which 5 are from Bury.
It will also give me a chance to take a look around my old stomping ground of Birmingham. I went to University there between 1999-2002, just at the time that the old Bull Ring was being pulled down and the whole area regenerated. I was there last just over a year ago, and the change is phenomenal. It is testament to strong local leadership that such an enormous project can come off, and has really been a boost to the city. Our hotel is not far from the new development, so hopefully I can have a look in between training sessions!
All of this of course means no blogging over the weekend, but I shall give a run-down of the news when I get back. Have a good few days.
