Labour's Local Government Committee held an event on Saturday morning to inform and advise members interested in standing for election to the Council in 2012. Really good turn out and a good discussion on what's involved in becoming a Councillor, the various duties and responsibilities, and our own internal selection procedures. While our event was taking place a rather noisy Orange march paraded down George IV Bridge, which created a sightly surreal atmosphere.
