Some photos of the event. I was there on the Saturday, but couldn't make it for the workshops on Sunday which I hear went very well. I thought Greg Judy was very enthusiastic and @Janet Hughes Defra came across as very sincere, I just hope she can achieve all her aims. @Tim Nicholson or @nicrenison could give more insight to how the Sunday workshops went.
