Deal & District Branch Questionnaire

Members of the branch will recall we distributed a questionnaire to conduct a survey of interests during this last year. The committee has spent time during the ensuing months looking at the responses and, where possible, contacting some of you in relation to comments made. The future programme together with some tweaking to the way we organise our monthly meetings is being organised taking account of those results. Inevitably it is not going to be possible to satisfy all points raised, some directly contradict each other, but hopefully it will be possible to accommodate a number of elements that have come out of the exercise. Should members wish to raise further points please feel free to contact me.

On behalf of the committee may I say a big thank you to all who took time to participate.

Peter Rose

Suggestions Please

The Committee welcomes suggestions for future events and/or talks.  If anyone would like to give a short talk about their own research interests, we would be pleased to hear from them.  Please contact the Programme Secretary (Sheila Harris) or any of the Committee members with details.

Also, if you are an experienced researcher and would be prepared to help at the drop-in sessions, please talk to one of the Committee.

We hope to organise some outdoor events as well as the normal monthly meetings - any suggestions would be welcomed.
