· The Society encourages members to follow the Geological Code for fieldwork and collecting published by the Geologists’ Association.

The Officers, Committee and volunteers of the Society have not had a criminal record check. Young members and guests under the age of 18 should be accompanied by a responsible adult.

The nature of geological fieldwork means that it is often unsuitable for people using wheelchairs or have other mobility problems.

The Society has third party public liability insurance through our affiliation to the Geologists’ Association.
