Geology

The important bit!

This group needs new members and a new convenor.  It is currently in abeyance although some remaining members of the group are keen for it to restart and are currently working with other u3as.

If you are interested in Geology, whether becoming a member or the convenor of the group, or joining in any of the work the remaining members of the group are doing, please contact Cherrie Temple for more information by email at geology@minehead-district-u3a.org.uk.
