In the winter the Society has a series of monthly lectures on topics of geological interest with guest speakers. Lectures start at 7-30 p.m. at the Department of Geography, University of Hull (unless otherwise stated).
Non-members are welcome to attend but please arrive before the start of the meeting - the doors will be locked after the meeting starts for security reasons. Here is a link to a Map of the University of Hull campus
In the summer there is a series of field meetings , usually led by experienced members of the Society to sites in East Yorkshire , the Yorkshire coast or Lincolnshire .
Occasionally there are mini-bus or weekend trips to sites outside our region. Help and advice is freely available to beginners on these trips. In recent years the Society has made contact with similar geological Societies in other parts of the country and has hosted field meetings for them, when local 'experts' lead the visiting party to quarries and the coast, as an introduction to the area.
Since the Centenary of the Society in l988 there have been special meetings which are suitable for beginners. These include guided walks around the city shop-fronts or graveyards. Boulder 'survey' meetings to the Holderness coast, looking at erratics in the Boulder Clay are exciting for beginner and veteran geologists alike
For further information about the Society and these meetings please contact the Secretary, Mike Horne, at 28 Salisbury Street , Hull , HU5 3HA , or telephone 01482 346784 (evenings after 7-30 pm), or email Mike Horne .
