Field Trip Schedule.
We try to organise regular field trips for collecting of minerals and fossils.Details of these trips are presented by Alan,our field trip coordinator ,at the monthly meetings
Our members come from diverse backgrounds,some quite new to collecting,some very experienced and knowledgable. Remember though its all for interest and fun!
We have a small library of books to borrow, lapidary and other geological equipment is also available .
