Group Leaders: David Ramsay & David Collins Phone number in Newsletter
The group meets on the second Tuesday of the month from 10.00 until 12.00 except in August.
Each member contributes toward the hall rental of £9 per morning regardless of whether or not they attend (This works out at about £4.50 per six months each).
The subject matter is non technical and is directed toward simply understanding how scenery throughout the world was formed. However if anyone would like to progress deeper into the subject I am more than happy to help them
The aims of this group are primarily to demonstrate how the present day land forms and scenery came into being, but also to study the development of the Earth’s mountains, continents and oceans and how they evolved and changed over the eons of time and how they came to be where they are today.
This will involve the study of minerals, rock formations, ice ages and fossils and we will take a look at which animals existed in those distant times and why they disappeared.
We will study the sites of long extinct volcanoes, deserts, forests, rivers and oceans and consider the reasons for their disappearance and their replacement with other earthly features.
There will be many surprises in store for those interested enough to join the group.
Maximum group number: 20
Venue: Edmond Room, Little Heath.
