Although we'd been able to get together as UE north and UE south in the summer of 2021 (UE south definately had better weather than the northern people who were faced with a very wet day at Yorkshire Sculpture Park!), it seemed like ages since we'd seen one another, except via Zoom.
It was good to be together again in person on 13 November, although there were quite a few last-minute withdrawals due to Covid and post-Covid weariness. And some of us are clearly still anxious about meeting together at present.
But the venue was excellent, we were well hosted by the staff there, and there was a mix of relaxed time for catching up and some input – first from Tracey Bennet on being ‘trauma-informed’ (although she was unwell and contributed via Zoom) and then from Barney & Sara as they introduced ‘The Big Covid Debrief’ resources.
