A CLUB hosted a national conference.

Tees Valley Inter-varsity Club (IVC) staged the IVC conference at the Parkmore Hotel, in Eaglescliffe.

Delegates from as far away as Bristol, Surrey, Cardiff and Edinburgh attended.

IVC clubs arrange social events. Activities during the conference included a walk up Roseberry Topping, in the Cleveland Hills, a beach walk from Seaton Carew to Seal Sands and a trip to Hartlepool's Maritime Experience.

Group chairman Louise Simonian said: "It's fair to say that everyone had a fantastic time, and all were impressed with the Tees Valley."
