Well, the L.O.S. presentation and fieldtrip season is over for another year and we now look forward to a summer break to recharge our batteries and get ready for the new 2018-19 season which starts in September.
We have a new Fieldtrips Officer, Paul Pennington, who will be taking over the planning and fieldtrip arrangements from September onwards. I'm sure we'll have lots of great places to visit, as usual, some old, some new but always great days out. There is no charge for these (except petrol-sharing costs and parking/entrance fees on a few reserves) and everyone is welcome to come along and bring friends and family.
If you'd like to contact Paul with some ideas for new fieldtrips within an hour and a half traveling distance of Leigh, he can be reached using the following email address: firstname.lastname@example.org or via a private message on one of our two Facebook groups:
The new fieldtrip programme will be announced on this website during the summer, as will the Friday night indoor meeting programme of presentation talks in the Derby Room at Leigh Library.
We also now have a members-only L.O.S. WhatsApp Chat group which can be used for chatting to L.O.S. members in-between meetings and frieldtrips and which may occasionally be used for arranging additional fieldtrips at short notice in-between the planned ones.
If you'd like to join the L.O.S. WhatsApp Chat group, please contact me, Martyn Jones using either of the two Facebook addresses above or by email using the following address: email@example.com.
So we now look forward to having a great new season with lots of old and hopefully some new faces joining us in our forthcoming presentation and fieldtrip programmes.
