Open House 2017

The Society threw open its doors to the general public on Saturday 16 September, writes Dawne Riddle

Over 1100 people chose to visit the Society this year for Open House.  In partnership with the Geologists’ Association, who also ran some urban geology tours of the area, visitors were invited to join one of seven guided tours during the day, led by Wendy Cawthorne, Sarah Day, Eileen Jamieson, Caroline Lam and Ted Nield.  The Library also operated a ‘pop-up bookshop’ selling a variety of souvenirs and books, taking over £500 – a new record.
