But the scenery made it all worthwhile.
The SfEP had organised a tour of Exeter Cathedral before the AGM on Saturday for those who arrived early.
The AGM started at 5pm, when we welcomed our new chair, Sara Peacock, and gave a big thank you to outgoing chair . Helen Stevens won the Judith Butcher Award for her hard work cultivating the SfEP's social media presence on Facebook, Twitter and LinkedIn.
SUNDAY, 1st September.
The day began with a bit of a surprise. "It's not often I share Sunday breakfast with hunks from the Glasgow rugby team," said Lorraine Slipper on Facebook.
