The Presidential Lecture by David Price traditionally in November has had to be cancelled so at short notice our Ken has stepped up to the plate to deliver a new illustrated talk he has prepared on geology and the landscape. Ken says "An understanding of geological processes can add much to our enjoyment of the landscapes around us. Mountains are worn down by rain, glaciers and rivers to form valleys while the coast is reshaped by the sea. At the same time, deposition of sediments leads to the creation of new landforms. The talk will also include the story of the disastrous cliff erosion at Fairlight Cove; at the usual place - 2.30 Sunday November 11th.

On December 9th we have the Annual General Meeting followed by our seasonal social. Please bring along nibble & drinks to share if you can, and also any new finds or other items to show fellow members.
