Field Meetings

Travel is by members’ cars or possibly a minibus if the numbers are sufficient, with costs shared between members at a standard rate. When a visit requires specific equipment – for instance hard hats, torches, wellingtons, high visibility jackets – you will be notified in advance.
Booking lists for the forthcoming field meetings are displayed at each lecture, but please contact David if you miss a lecture and want to know the details or book a place.
If you have suggestions for visits or would like to lead one, David would be delighted to hear from you. David Ward - 01344 485021
