Newbury Geological Study Group (NGSG) | How we are run
Listed below is our proposed program for 2016/2017. Our season runs from September to June . There is usually a £10.00 fee per person per trip payable on the day (children under 16 are free). £5.00 of this goes towards running the Group, covering expenses like insurance and the web site. The other £5.00 is paid to our geological consultant (Les James) to cover his time and expenses. All the information is provisional until the detailed email is sent out.
Use of the minibus is optional. It will leave from Newbury Wharf at a time to be advised. Normally there will be at least one short comfort break on route.
Cost for a long trip will be around £10.00. The minibus is rarely full, but if necessary space will be allocated on a first come first serve basis. We are only paying for the use of the vehicle with one of our members driving as a volunteer
The away trip will include Geology on the Saturday and Sunday. Members may like to travel on the Friday or can join us at the first site on Saturday morning. Members can if they wish just come for one day. The charge for this trip will be £7.50 for each day attended.
