Debates have been lively and well-informed and the electronic voting system didn’t break.
This year, nurses really made sure their voices were heard, something that my colleagues on the national papers appreciated.
Even more appreciated was the fantastic retirement cake prepared for John Carvel, who is retiring as the social affairs correspondent on the Guardian this week.
Mr Carvel was presented with the cake during his ‘What The Papers Say’ news review, which has been a regular event at Congress for years.
Shaped like a copy of the Guardian, Mr Carvel was admiring it all afternoon and told me he was going to save it for his official retirement party next week.
