jkh

A celebration of Professor Peter Fookes, and the work of the Engineering Group’s Working Parties, was held at Burlington House on 17 December 2013. Peter received a bound copy of the Hot Deserts Working Party report in the presence of the President Mr David Shilston, and many Working Party members past and present. John Charman (left, below) delivered a tribute to Peter Fookes, followed by addresses from Helen Scholes (Chair, EGGS), and David Shilston.

Ted Nield gave an illustrated talk about the importance of regional activities and engineering geology in the early history of the Society, and conducted the party on a tour of the Apartments and their treasures, including the newly refurbished Council Room, completed on that day with the delivery of its 32 handmade chairs.
