Event Reminder – Members’ Evening

Members’ Evening will be held by Zoom on Wednesday 9th December at 7.30 pm

By now members should have received an email with the Zoom meeting link and information. If not then check your spam/junk email folder, or please use the form below to request details.

We hope the evening will replicate the usual social occasion as much as possible so do feel free to come with (Mervyn’s) ginger cake or similar and appropriate drink.

We will begin with a few notices followed by a presentation by Sylvia Woodhead There will then be a break to enable members to refill their glasses and have some informal chat. The final event of the evening will be a presentation by Chris Wilson.

‘Three new Geo-Trails in the Westmorland Dales area’ – Breaking News from Cumbria GeoConservation to Cumberland Geological Society. Sylvia Woodhead

Spreading the word: an introduction to geology in and around Keswick. Chris Wilson
During the first lock down I started writing this introduction which is based on material that I use with my Skiddaw U3A geology group. I had hoped to make it available so that local people could use it to learn more about the local area whilst out on their daily exercise. The good weather at the time thwarted completion as I spent a lot of time out walking or gardening. When I eventually finished the guide I then thought about how I should try to promote it. I will show a few parts of the guide and explain the steps I took for it to be posted on several tourism websites and led to an article in the current issue of Cumbria Life. I hope this will encourage members to consider how to promote the public understanding of geology in the areas in which they live.

We anticipate finishing by 9pn.

This meeting will be open to members only. Information on how to join will be emailed to members.

Our members evening will be on 9 December 2020 via Zoom, a popular software platform for online meetings and conferences, it is simple to use and you can participate without having to set up any account and from various devices such as lap tops, iPads, tablets, mobile phones.
