You half expected Greta Garbo to slink from screen left or one of those 1930s' Busby Berkeley dance sequences to break out in the dining room. With three golf courses, a swimming pool - that, according to one over-excited journalist, looked like a good setting for a Roman orgy - and as many marble columns as you could imagine, the venue for this year's Secndary Heads Association conference (situated off a roundabout outside Newport, Gwent) put it a cut above your normal union bash. But then the Secondary Heads Association has never been just any old union. Sadly, orgies were in short supply, and the cast weren't quite up to the dance sequences. Worse still, all the golf courses were waterlogged.
