Welcome to the 33rd year of the Brighton & Hove Geological Society. You will find below the list of lectures and events which have been planned for the coming months and I do hope that you will find plenty to interest you. It would be good to see everyone at some time and of course great to see those of you who are regular attendees. To those people who have recently joined, perhaps I should remind you that our meetings are held in West Blatchington Windmill, Holmes Avenue, Hove, and start at 7.30 p.m. Tea and coffee are normally available from soon after 7 p.m. so please do your best to arrive in good time.
You will also find within these pages a reminder slip to pay your subscription and I know our Treasurer Theo Harding will be very grateful to receive payments sooner rather than later.
