HCNRG banner

Reformed in 2013, the Home Counties North group covers north London, Buckinghamshire, Hertfordshire, Bedfordshire and Northamptonshire.  We aim to provide a friendly local focus for geology enthusiasts from all backgrounds, including academia, those working in the geoscience community or hobbyists.  All ages very welcome.

Sophy Crosby has recently stepped down as Chairperson due to increased work commitments.  Sophy has led the committee since it was reformed and has brought enthusiasm and life to the group.  We would like to thank her for all her hard work over the last couple of years and wish her well with her new business.

Our committee is enthusiastic about providing events which cover a broad range of subject matter in the form of both field trips, workshops and talks.  Our speakers will always be interesting and knowledgeable and we aim to assist younger members with their CPD.

Events will be held throughout our region, but many talks will be located roughly in the centre of our region around Hatfield, Hemel Hempstead and Milton Keynes.
