The 2022-2032 Winter Lecture programme is being organised on a hybrid system ...
Last winter's programme delivered by Zoom because of Covid restrictions has both advantages and disadvantages. The main disadvantage was the lack of actual contact and physical presence. Some members found that lack to be very significant, and/or did not get on well with the electronics. The advantage (apart from simply allowing us to continue at all!) was that we could have visiting speakers from literally anywhere in the world - so we had experts speaking from and about Yellowstone, and South Africa.
So this year, our Lecture Programme will use a mixed format - some Zoom, some Face-to-face. Click the button for details.
Urgent last-minute notice ....
Feb 16th Zoom meeting cancelled due to illness.
The 2023 Summer Programme has not yet been finaloised, but some dates and venues have been agreed - click the 'Next Field Trip button.
Field trips are normally only open to members. Potential new members may attend lextures (face-to-face or zoom) to see how things work. Membership is basically £20 per year, with reductions available for students and two members at one address.
Other advantages of membership: During Covid we have been forced to move onto Zoom - and have now established links with our sister organisation in South Africa, who are running a similar series of lectures - to which we are invited. Details from Huttonsedgewick@gmail.com

And another related organisation has recently suggested closer links between us.
They are the Cumberland Geological Society, and their aims and methods of operating are similar to our own - maybe of interest to members in the west of our area.
Another potentially useful link for our younger members .
