A warning about pedestrian access to Byrom Street

Vehicle access to Byrom Street should be as normal but now that the pedestrian walkway is closed off with a view to demolition, it is impossible to get to Byrom Street from the city centre without walking a very long way. If you are walking to Byrom Street, please allow extra time to get to the LGS meetings. TRAIN The easiest way to Byrom Street is to get off a train at Moorfields Station and walk down Tithebarn Street and Great Crosshall Street. From Lime Street Station you will have to cross Hunter Street at the traffic lights near the Unite Union building then walk down the hill towards Byrom Street. BUS From Roe Street bus stops, walk to Dale Street, then Hatton Garden, Great Crosshall Street. Details about the work on the Churchill Way flyovers can be seen at: https://liverpool.gov.uk/media/1358209/churchill- way-a3-map-1.jpg
Expressions of interest for a Lanzarote geology and cultural field trip. There is a possibility of Prof Cynthia Burek and colleagues running a 6-day trip for LGS members in either 2020 or 2021 based around the equivalent trip they organised for the Open University Geology Tutors Group in September 2018. (They ran the previous trip for a total of 28 people including the leaders and could do the same again if there is sufficient interest) The proposal is to base the trip out of the Las Brisas resort in the town of Playa Blanca on the SW coast of Lanzarote. The resort details can be found at: http://www.wimpen.com/en/las-brisas/resort.htm but, for information, consists of pleasant mostly two- bedroomed/ 2-bathroom villas with air conditioning/heating adjoining, via a 10-minute walk, the picturesque fishing village of Playa Blanca. There is also the possibility that some one- and three-bedroomed villas may be available. Built in traditional Moorish style with white walls and natural woodwork, the villas are set in landscaped gardens, with the resort centred around a large, heated swimming pool and bar/restaurant/shop complex. The villas are all self-catering with a full kitchen. As for costs, it is estimated that the rental of the villas (with 4 sharing a 2 bedroomed villa), plus hire of the mini-bus vehicles, petrol, utilities at Las Brisas, entrance fees to the National Park and various cultural sites etc. plus a last night dinner will be around £300-350pp. The only thing that will not be covered will be flights to and from Lanzarote (ideally should arrive and depart on a Thursday) and food and drink for the participants whilst they are in Las Brisas (except the final night when that will be covered). For further details, or to express interest in joining this excursion please see Geoff Gilchrist at a meeting or contact him Geoff Gilchrist by email: gilchristge@gmail.com or mobile: 07896 837354
