News of Future Activities
The Education Committee continues to put together a programme for members (and visitors), taking
account of the uncertain times.
On a positive front we can confirm that Zoom lectures will continue until April, with an intention to extend
these monthly as necessary or desirable in the absence of anything else.
February 17th Prof. Ian Fairchild

Dr. Noel Worley
Henry Clifton Sorby
- Sheffield’s Greatest Scientist
Possible additional Zooms:
Closure of the Iapetus Ocean
These talks may be reversed and are subject to confirmations.
Additional talks from the Leicester Lit. and Phil. Society
A new opportunity for future geothermal energy in Yorkshire
An Introduction to the Geology of Iceland
We would hope that a normal “in-house” lecture programme can be resumed in September.
Field activities will be revived once conditions allow, and basically, we are hoping to resume with the
programme we had lined up for 2020. This will include any or all of the following:
Wren’s Nest (with BCGS)
Blockley Quarry (if allowed)
Apedale Heritage Museum / Biddulph Grange
Residential trips currently on hold, but with leaders still available to take them forward:
Mendips (?August 20-22)
The Saturday Workshop
Event is now deferred until February 2022.
Updates will be circulated via emails and on the WGCG website.
