Events

Events are open to non-members who wish to try out the society. CGS field trips are open to the public and while we try to ensure safety for all, participants are responsible for themselves and should consider whether they are able to take part.

We are hosting meetings via the Zoom application. This works on compatible computers, tablets and smartphones, provided that you have a reliable internet connection.  It is also possible to dial in via telephone and use the meeting codes to join.

Presentations and lectures start at the advertised time so please login to the meeting a little earlier.

If you wish to organize a lecture send a message to our coordinator who will be happy to help.

To stay up to date with new events and changes to current ones subscribe to our free emailing list on this page. You do not need to be a society member for this and your email address will not be used for any other purposes.
