Newbury Geological Study Group (NGSG) | How we are run
Our trips are designed to be both educational and fun. They give an opportunity to see geological structures at first hand. Handouts are usually provided and we normally have the geological maps of the area available. All aspects of geology are covered and we sometimes do some practical work such as testing soils or measuring river flows.
Read the detailed instruction which are emailed to you. These tell you about the meeting place, whether or not hard hats are required, the arrangements for lunch and other information we think you will find useful.We also give as much detail as we can about the terrain and the walking involved. We usually meet about 10.00am and finish about 4.00pm.
We have started to run the minibus again. Details of the pickup point and cost are circulated in the trip information email that is sent out to members.
A provisional programme is emailed in the Autumn and will appear on this site. We send a more detailed email at least a week before the trip takes place. Please let us know if you intend to come. If we have to cancel we get in touch with those who have told us they are coming.
A packed lunch is required for most day trips. See the trip details for specific information.
A camera, hand lens, geological hammer and goggles can be useful pieces of equipment to carry. You should also have a hard hat (see Health & Safety).
