Family Room, Conservative Club
Leader: Joyce McMurray
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
We meet on the first Tuesday of the month from 10-12am in the Family Room of the Conservative Club, Long Street. The room fee is £1.00 which includes Tea or Coffee and a biscuit.
Unfortunately our numbers mean we cannot, as yet, start up our monthly meeting. If guidance changes and the Conservative Club feel they can host us again I will inform our members and update our Webpage.
We have also had to cancel our planned Field Trip to Newquay, but still have our Field Trip to Criccieth, North Wales, in September 2021 to look forward to next year.
If you would like to join the Group and receive our weekly newsletter, which keeps you up with Geological news and information, please let me know.
