Before counting the stars have a look underfoot.
Daily it is forced home on the mind of the geologist that nothing, not even the wind that blows, is so unstable as the level of the crust of this Earth. — Charles Darwin.
Happily we have been able to restart our meetings from Tuesday 6th July, under Covid Rules naturally.
We meet in the Conservative Club in Long Street at 10am on the first Tuesday of the Month. Our meetings consist of an illustrated talk, a Tea and Coffee break, then a session where we discuss any new happenings, have a short member’s talk or a question and answer session.
Our weekly Newsletter keeps us up with Geological events, and contains contributions by members of their forays into Local and World Geology.
Our Field Trip to Llandudno, North Wales is going ahead in October and our July, August and September talks will cover the Geology of that region.
If you would like to join the Group (no geological knowledge required, just curiosity) and receive our weekly newsletter, which keeps you up with Geological news and information, please let me know.
