The Reading Geological Society has had an active role in geology for over 40 years.
Based in Reading, Berkshire (UK), we are a friendly and enthusiastic group for amateurs, professionals and all those interested in Earth sciences, who want to discover more about the earth, its rocks, minerals and fossils.
We have monthly meetings offering lectures by experts and friendly discussion. All are welcome and there is no charge for visitors.
Our monthly field meetings provide an opportunity to travel around the UK with fellow enthusiasts. We also arrange extended field trips further afield and sometimes abroad.
RGS 40th Anniversary Celebration
25th June 2017 Rushall Farm
All members will have received an invitation to the Reading Geological Society 40th Birthday Party at Rushall Manor Farm, and we hope that you are able to come!
We are holding a photo competition for members only which will be judged beforehand. Prizes will be awarded at the party.
Mike Ledger is organising this and would like to receive entries of your best geological photographs. His flyer, with all the details is available here.
Please send your entries to Mike at the address on the flyer, or of course you can bring them to a meeting or pass them onto a committee member; this should be by June 11th at the latest.
We hope that all of you will submit a photo or two of geological interest and we will have a display of your excellent entries at the party!
We are also having a photo display at the party of RGS field trips or other events through the ages!
This will be a light-hearted display, so photos with people please and the older the photo the better - so we can all see how we have improved through time! Recent pictures will be very welcome too, with people in!
If they are electronic, then please email to rgs.secretary or if prints or slides, I can scan in and print off for the display and return the originals to you.
Please, please have a rummage around this weekend and see what you can find.
If you can bring them to a Monday meeting, excellent, but if not perhaps you could send them to me or I will even come and collect them and return later. Contact me via the email link above or using the contact form below to arrange.
This display could be brilliant with lots of pictures of us all through the years..... so have a look through your old stuff.....the more pictures the better, from 40 years ago or last week, all will be welcome.
If you would like more information use the "Contact us" button to send a brief email to our General Secretary.
