General information about the group
There is a charge of £1 to cover hire of hall & tea & coffee . We encourage members to bring their own mug or cup if convenient, however we do have single-use compostable mugs .
The newspapers are full of information on advances in knowledge of everything from the Higgs boson to stem cells, GM crops, climate change, new discoveries about the depths of the ocean, new materials like graphene, and recent advances in medical science.
If you are a bit overwhelmed by all of this, you may like to join the Science Group, where we have a programme of talks in understandable everyday language to update people on areas of science that have changed since their school days and to help people keep abreast of exciting new discoveries.
We also organise occasional visits.
If you are interested in joining this group please contact Julia via the 'message bird'.
