CGS Event Update

Following guidelines set by the government and considering the well being of our members and followers the CGS has postponed all excursions, meetings and lectures until further notice.

Should you be in isolation, or seeking a reason to stay indoors you may find the following publications of interest:

Northern England by British Geological Survey
ISBN 085272652x

Interpreting Pre-Quaternary Climate from the Geologic Record
ISBN 0231102070

An Introduction to Geophysical Exploration
ISBN 0632049294

Interpretation of Geological Maps
ISBN 0582301696


At the moment we intend to proceed with the AGM at Cockermouth FMH on Wednesday 25th, and the President’s Address which will be “THE GEOLOGICAL EVOLUTION OF THE CANARY ISLANDS”.

There will be a Special General Meeting incorporated into the AGM to consider an amendment to the Constitution. In light of the current situation, there will be no refreshments served and we expect those attending to observe all the advice regarding dealing with the corona-virus.

If the situation dramatically changes we will postpone the meeting until appropriate and this will be publicised via the web-site. Members can also contact me on 01768 895743.

The planned social event mentioned in the newsletter i.e at Hundith Hill on April 8 is CANCELLED. Any cheques already sent will be returned.

There is no change planned for the Excursion Programme at the time of sending this message but as always, consult the web-site for any alteration.

On the positive side, the issue of our new-style publication “The Cumberland Geologist” (replacing the title Proceedings) is imminent and we hope will be available at the AGM.
