|Chairperson:||Dr. Anne Padfield
Tel: 01634 686294
Members wishing to attend a field
meeting, (or who have to cancel); are asked to
inform either the Field Meetings Secretary or the
Chairman at least three weeks in advance, as it may
be necessary to alter arrangements.
Longer notice will be required for weekend Field
Meetings so that accommodation can be arranged.
Details will be supplied on the booking form, or as
soon as it becomes available.
A leader will be appointed for each field trip to ensure that the group complies with laws, bye-laws, health and safety requirements, codes of conduct, and to ensure that the group is adequately equipped to handle emergencies.
His or her instructions must be obeyed at all times.Members will be asked to provide contact information and any special medical condition of which the Leader should be aware. Members should come with appropriate clothing and equipment for the envisaged Field Trip and must pay particular attention to safety instructions given by the Leader. If in doubt, ASK!
Children are welcome on most of the Field Meetings but must
be accompanied by an adult on all trips and
workshops. Members should note that some events may
be more suitable than others for younger members.
The main exclusion is likely to be visits to a
quarry where the quarry insurance may exclude
persons younger than a specified age. Please check
with the Field Meetings Secretary, or the Chairman,
the specific restrictions for any field trip.
Full details will be available a few weeks before the start of each trip.
Members are reminded that, even if they have their own transport, it may be convenient to car-share. Not only does this save fuel if the site is some distance away but parking may be restricted at many sites.
The Field Meetings Secretary, or the Chairman, will be happy to discuss and suggest transport arrangements.
Suggestions for future field meetings should be submitted to the Field Meetings Secretary.
