The local groups' Conference was held between the 14-16 September – Everyone enjoyed the weekend and each attendee from our group has written a short piece on their favourite part:
Being a volunteer
On arriving at Imperial College I could feel the excitement starting to build, finding out where all the rooms are, what needs to be done. Bang and all the delegates start to come in their droves, from old to young they came to hear what great work has been going on in Friends of the Earth. Question after question, I answered them all while dressing up as a big friendly bee. Being a staff member at the conference made me have some of the best fun I ever have had, going to random lectures on Rio and hearing Caroline Lucas, who could ask for more?
