Our Aims:

To promote a wider interest in the science of geology through organised lectures, field excursions and social activities.

To provide a link between the amateur, the student, the teacher and the professional geologist.

To foster interest in geological sites within the area with a view to their study and wise conservation.

To establish and maintain good relations with organisations that have common interests.

Field Trips: WEGA, the Bath Geological Society, and the Geology section of the Bristol Naturalists group have a reciprocal arrangement whereby members from each of the groups are able to attend trips organised by any of the other groups. Typically there are local day excursions, a weekend trip somewhere in the UK, and when possible a longer trip in more exotic localities.

Lecture Programme: Lectures are held at 7:30 on a Tuesday in the months from October to December inclusive. The AGM, involving a members evening, is normally held in April, but the movable feast of Easter makes its date somewhat variable.
