ADVANCED INFORMATION

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 Philip_firth@yahoo.com.

 Preparations for 2018/19 session

As the end of the session approaches plans are already underway for the next session 2018/19. Members are invited to send ideas for lectures/activities to the programme secretary, Chris Hunt at chris1972scfc@outlook.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 location. 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...............
