Newbury Geological Study Group (NGSG) | How we are run
Evening Class 2018/2019
Two six week terms are proposed.
The classes will be on Tuesdays, starting at 7:00 pm. and run for about 2 hours. Maximum cost for the term will be £65.00, but we are not intending to make a profit so the cost will vary depending on numbers. Sorry no refunds after term starts and no concessions. Minimum number to make the course viable is 12 and the maximum we can take is 29.
For those new to the group, Dr Les James has been teaching geology for 40 years and has run courses for both Reading and Oxford Universities. For many years he ran courses at Newbury College, but support for these declined, because of the high cost, so a few years ago NGSG started to run them on a non profit basis. The last 10 week Oxford University courses run by Les at Reading University costs £175.00 (Oxford have discontinued all courses at Reading now). Our equivalent based on 12 attending would be £110.00.
Venue This year will take place at St Bartholomew School, Newbury (entrance and car park from Buckingham Road).
Dates for first 6 week term are November 6th;13th;20th; 27th; December 4th and 11th . Dates for 2019 will be advised later.
This years course will be entitled ‘Rocks and Landscape’. It will continue with the theme started last year, but will be suitable for new members. It will be a revision course for those who have been supporting us for some time. There will be some links to to trips we are doing, but there is no need to go on the trips to benefit from the course.
If you are interested let Helen know (firstname.lastname@example.org) and you will b sent details when these are known.
