Details of the Programme are as complete as possible at the time of printing. Updates will appear as necessary and will be posted on our Web site.

The Tertiary Research Group cannot accept liability for any loss or accident incurred whilst on out field meetings. Everyone who attends does so at his or her own risk. Always wear suitable footwear and clothing and for quarry visits, please bring your own hardhat and high visibility vest.

Some visits have restricted numbers and occasionally a visit may have to be postponed or cancelled. For these reasons, it is imperative that you notify the Programme Organiser at least 10 days before the event if you wish to attend and leave a contact phone number please.

This list may be amended to include additional joint visits with the Essex Rick & Mineral Society.

Mid July to Mid September is likely to be a difficult time to travel because of the Olympic and Paralympic Games, so no field meetings have been arranged in that period.
