As most of you will have already seen from the various photographs, the combined course/conference that took place at Derby on the 21st was a resounding success. A full report (along with even more pictures!) Will be appearing in our next journal, along with transcripts of some of the papers presented. I would like to thank all who attended and who helped to make this event the success it was, and to offer a warm welcome to the new members of the institute we gained from this gathering. Special thanks must go out to certain individuals who performed well and truly above the call of duty who will also be highlighted in the upcoming journal. Stay tuned!
