The society is for anyone interested in geology, 
whether beginners or experienced.
This is our 46th year!

We hold monthly talks on a wide range of earth science topics, usually on the 2nd Thursday of the month
. We have several day and weekend field trips a year and sometimes a longer foreign excursion.   

All our talks take place at Oaklands College.
Click here to download detailed directions to the venue.

The Geologists' Association are advising all Local and Affiliate Groups to cancel or postpone their meetings  for the foreseeable future, in line with government advice. 
We have therefore decided to cancel the HGS talks for April, May and June.

Hopefully they can be rescheduled for a later date.  
Please check this web site for further updates..

Next meeting: to be decided but not before July

Next field trip:
 The status of upcoming field trips is not yet clear.
Again, please check this web site for updates.
