Portsmouth Readers’ Annual Conference
Each year at the end of January we hold our conference at Sandown on the Isle of Wight. We have a teaching focus for each year and usually manage to get excellent speakers to inspire us. We stay in a warm, comfortable hotel, full board, with a bar.
Comfortable hotel, great company, inspiring speakers, exciting programme.
“Why would you not want to be there?”
The conference is organised by a small team consisting, at present, of: Ven Gavin Collins (Warden of Readers), Hilary Spurgeon, Chris Aherne, Steve Brett-Hill, Mary Close and Ethne Whitlock.
