WHERE:Various venues
WHEN:Announced at the monthly meeting. This group also has a table at the monthly meeting.

This popular group started up mid-2018 and had been running for around 18 months before Covid-19 intervened but has been unable to operate during the current restrictions. Plans are being put in place for a 2022 visit programme. Questionnaires related to venues were available at the Town Hall monthly meeting on Tuesday, 21st September. If you didn't make the meeting or didn't pick one up then please click on the bird to ask for one to be sent to you. Please bring your completed questionnaires to the October Town Hall meeting. The results will be analysed and a meeting set up to discuss them and agree a plan for next year. Meeting date and venue to be confirmed later.

The full title of the group is "Science, engineering and technology". The group visits industrial facilities of interest and is open to any ideas for talks or educational opportunities within this broad remit. The group leader(s) will coordinate the timetable with members responsible for arranging the visits. Usually members car share to get to and from the venue with costs being appropriately shared. Sometimes there are 2 shorter events in one day with refreshments at a suitable time. In this case members choose what they want to eat and drink and pay for themselves.

Places we have been to date include Elddis Caravans and Motorhomes, EBAC, Durham Miners Hall, Northumbrian Water, Nissan, NELSAM, Bowes Railway Museum, Path Head Water Mill, York Railway Museum, and Hartlepool Nuclear Power Station.
