Dr Roger Suthren's lecture on the "Geology of Wine –
Languedoc, France" at the Joint Meeting with the Herdman
Society on November 21st was a great success, as was the
wine tasting afterwards. Assuming there is sufficient interest
from members, Roger has agreed to lead us on a week long
field excursion to the South of France in early October 2018.
In order to take this opportunity further we need to know who
is potentially interested in the trip. If you would like to express
an interest can you send an email to Philip Firth using this
LGS is celebrating this event on Saturday 12th May. We would

for the next session 2018/19.
Members are invited to send ideas for lectures/activities to the
programme secretary, Chris Hunt at email@example.com
If you have specific speakers in mind please supply contact
details if possible.
The popular member's evening will be scheduled provided we
have the speakers to do it, so bear this in mind when on your
summer holidays- there may be a talk hiding in that beautiful
Please send offers for (10-20 minute) member's talks in as soon as
possible- this needs your support to make it happen.
Feedback from the 2017/18 session is invited. Slightly longer
lecture programme this year with wide ranging topics which
hopefully had something in there for everyone.
Was it too advanced? Not enough palaeontology? Like more
applied? Let us know...............
There will be an Extraordinary meeting of the Liverpool
Geological Society immediately before the main lecture on
Tuesday 20th March. The agenda is given here.
