Dear Ed,

I wish I was writing to you in better circumstances. Today's tragic news of the death of Sir David Amess MP has no doubt shocked and appalled all of us.

Having reflected and taken HQ advice, I can confirm that tomorrow's conference will be going ahead.

I'm sure you will join with me in marking our respect with a moment's silence at the start of conference.

As a further display of respect, I'd ask that you not post to social media the excited images or comments of conference that you might normally share.

And now some housekeeping messages:

  • Please don't come if you're experiencing Covid19 symptoms, meant to be isolating or positive for Covid19
  • Please take a lateral flow test before coming (if you haven't already in the last 48 hours of arriving)
  • Please wear a face mask when moving about the venue (unless exempt)
  • Bring cash for lunch (£5) and cake
  • Please try and bring your own mug if you can so that we aren't using disposable cups.
  • Programme details, reports from the exec, nomination details are all on the conference website.

Thank you for purchasing your ticket. I can't wait to see you there!

Kind Regards

James Read
Chair
South Central Liberal Democrats
