Rationale for starting a Virtual Geography Group.
As someone of mature years and with an underlying health condition I intend to avoid indoor meetings until I feel it is safe. However, I do miss the social interaction that various U3A groups provide and wondered if a virtual group would help. A Geography group seemed a good option because it can cover such a wide area. As well as what is thought of as traditional geography it could take in anything to do with weather and climate, development of settlements, ecology, communications, conservation, pollution and even COVID-19.
At our first meeting we looked at old maps of the locality. See pic.
Meetings will be on Zoom so group members can see and hear each other and see illustrations etc.
Meetings are on the first and 3rd Thursday of each month at 11am.
Contact Gerry Reeves for details and in order to receive the invitation link each time.
