Our regional network met on Sunday 30 October with delegates from:

Darlington, Teesside, Hexham, Blyth and Wansbeck, Gateshead, North Tyneside, Tyne and Wear, Sunderland and apologies from Durham and North Cumbria .

The meeting unanimously voted to censure the Steering Committee for cancelling the National Committee on 5 November and along with 4 other regions who met this weekend (LOndon, Eastern, South East) voted for the National Committee to go ahead on 5 November in Birmingham in whatever form and to send delegates.

We re-elected unanimously Jo Land (Darlington) and Ed Whitby (Tyne and Wear) to be our representatives until an election planned at the regional conference re-elects delegates to future NC meetings.
