This Group is now in its 17th year and meets in a comfortable room which provides a friendly atmosphere for informal learning.  Members are encouraged to contribute to the programme for which projector laptop and visualizer are available.

Topics could cover the geological  and landscape features, as a result of visits to places in UK and abroad, making use of resources found on the internet to enhance the presentation.

We also have an extensive collection of rocks and fossils which are available to the group for consultation and use in presentations. Field study days are held in late Spring and early Summer.

 

Please note that all meetings usually  take place on the fourth Wednesday in the month.
