Our next meeting will be the first of our winter indoor meetings.  It will be on Thursday 28th November at 10.00 am in the Council Chamber in the Civic Centre in Poynton.  We'll have a review of the year and look forward to next year.  If anyone has any ideas about what you'd like to do next year, please bring them along (or email me if you can't get to this meeting).  Please also bring along any geological bits and pieces you have come across during the year that you think would be interesting (holiday geology, including photos or even guide books; interesting places you've come across; curious rocks you've found; books you've read; etc), and any queries you might have.  We'll also be having a presentation on China Clay from Lesley and I've a few things to say about aspects of the geology of the Basque region.

Please note that this will be a morning meeting, as will all our indoor meetings.  I'll also have to collect some money from everyone to cover the cost of the room hire.
