We agreed at AMWG last night that Northumbria AM would host QuINE in 2014. It seems to me that this is the opportunity for Friends in the NE region to share their concerns, projects to encourage joint working, sharing of good practice etc. We could also review those activities where we share responsibilities, eg Shindig, The Retreat, W&S trust. There could also be the opportunity to include input from YM so that there is greater understanding of Central work locally and local work centrally. Sounds a lot but perhaps if we take themes and invite input. Also some items could be specialist groups and poster displays.
