It is recommended that, in the event of adverse weather reports prior to a field trip the leader of the day be contacted. If they are not available contact John Webb: 01524 701497.  

Please bring a packed lunch for field trips.

Members and friends attend lectures/meetings/ field trips at their own risk and the Society cannot be held responsible for accidents.

We encourage members to share cars to field trip sites in the interest of the protection of habitats and landscape and as there is often limited parking. The cost of the trip should be divided as agreed by those sharing the car.

No Dogs.
