Dear all,

We are very happy to welcome you back for a new year of talks with the society and hope you had a very restful and interesting summer. This is the society’s third year and one we are very excited about! We have our very first conference happening 29th-30th October (More information on our conference page) alongside another full year of talks, trips and events for you.

Our first talk will be with Peter Robinson and we encourage you to share this poster with family and friends.
