It was raised at the last meeting but no decision was made (was a small
meeting anyway). I feel a bit clearer after seeing this email that it
could be a good thing to go to. But  who would go? and who would get the
presentation / stall together? Also the other organisations are directly
working with some of the young people involved so we would be a bit
outside of the remit. We would need to have a clear idea of what we were
trying to get across.
I'll be at work on the day but I could help out some in getting a basic
stall together...
