Thornbury Geology Group meeting
WhenThu, 18 May, 19:30 – 20:30
Description Thornbury Geology Group, The Chantry, Thornbury, 7.30pm, contact 01454 416882
The group is is an offshoot of Thornbury and District Museum and we welcome new members.
Previous geological knowledge can be helpful but is not necessary as members are very willing to share their own knowledge with anyone keen to learn more about Earth Science.
The group is loosely following a pre-recorded lecture series which is supplemented by use of other material and geological specimens. On occasions a guest speaker will talk on their specialist topic.
Costs are met from attending members' monthly contributions and the group does not have membership subscriptions or a committee
