This morning was set aside for a training session on council finance which all councillors are required to attend. The course was led by two experts from the Local Government Information Unit.
Given my past involvement with councils, the course itself didn't tell me a whole lot that was new, but it is always good to have your knowledge re-affirmed (just make sure you haven't missed anything new).
Perhaps the best element of the course was being able to chat with fellow councillors from different groups and to work with them during one break out session.
And finding that a fellow councillor from another group is a reader of this blog!
