On 12th March the Geology section met at Dinosaur Isle museum in Sandown, for the first time in several years.
Members were greeted by Steve Hutt, the new leader. He outlined the objectives of the section, and briefly recounted his one-time joint leadership of the section with Keith Marston. Since then, Steve has played a leading role in the Geological Society of the Isle of Wight, which was regrettably disbanded last year.
The meeting then enjoyed a whistle-stop photographic journey around the entire coast of the Island by Trevor Price, who illustrated the great variety of sedimentary rocks and geomorphology that exists on our doorstep.
Two outdoor meetings led by Steve Hutt are scheduled for later in the year.
(1) Saturday 23 July 10 am from the National Trust carpark at Rocken End, Niton (SZ494758), also known as Windy Corner. This is at the west end of Old Blackgang Road (marked Sandrock Road on some maps), along the Undercliff.
(2) Sunday 25 September 11 am at Totland Bay (SZ322867) from the seafront carpark.
