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 483563

Safety on field meetings is taken very seriously. Should you be unsure about either the risks involved or your ability to participate, you must seek advice from the leader. Please make sure you understand the risk assessment offered by the leader of the meeting and that you have the safety equipment specified. You must declare, at the time of booking, any disabilities or medical conditions that may affect your ability to safely attend this field meeting. In order to ensure the safety of all participants, the RGS reserves the right to limit or refuse attendance at field meetings. Minors must be accompanied by a parent, or another adult who accepts responsibility for the minor.
