Meetings

There is an Annual Field Meeting & AGM, usually the first weekend (Thursday-Sunday) after Easter. We aim to move the location around Britain. Accommodation is usually field centre type. During the day a variety of sites are visited for the purposes of collecting. During the evenings short talks, identification workshops or other activities are held depending on demand and attendance. Notice of the meeting is given in the newsletter. Visitors from other countries are always welcome and should enquire of any of the officers for further information.
 
Additional Field Meetings are arranged from time to time, details given in the newsletters.

Annual Field Meeting and AGM

Thursday 30th March to Sunday 2nd April 2017

The 2017 meeting will be based in Morecambe providing opportunities to record in areas such as the Forest of Bowland, the Lake District, the northern Pennines and around Morecambe Bay.

We have provisionally reserved every room in a seafront guesthouse for the weekend. The guesthouse has a television lounge and a dining room cum bar that can be used for evening meetings. Single, twin, triple and double rooms will be available so there will be beds for somewhere between 17 and 20 depending mainly on how many want a double room.

The cost for the weekend will be £90 for a shared room (twin, triple or double) and £120 for a single but note that this is a bed and breakfast only cost. We will need to find a local establishment (there are plenty nearby) for each evening meal and arrange our own packed lunches.

To reserve your place return a completed booking form (download here) with a £30 deposit (cheques made payable ‘British Myriapod and Isopod Group’) to Paul Lee, Little Orchard, Capel Road, Bentley, Ipswich IP9 2DW. 

Please contact Paul Lee if you need additional information or have any queries.
