PSG Meeting This Saturday (24 Jan)

Dear PSG members,

Happy New Year! We hope you had a lovely festive period and a great start to 2015.

Winter Meeting / AGM, Saturday 24th January 2015

Meeting Room: Flett Theatre and Atrium

We cannot use the Dorothea Bate room this year, so will be meeting again in the "Flett Theatre and Atrium" area, which is easily accessed by entering the Natural History Museum via the Earth Sciences entrance in Exhibition Road. Once inside go up the steps, turn left and then go up the staircase until you reach the glassed-in Atrium area, on the left.

We are looking forward to seeing lots of you this Saturday for our Winter Meeting and AGM. The meeting looks to be a fantastic line up of illustrated talks, a short film ("Sticky"), 'Name the Species' competition, the chance to grill our experts with phasmid questions, plus the ever-enthusiastic livestock exchange!

You are encouraged to arrive any time after 10/10:30am to meet and mingle and the meeting will start promptly at 11:30am. Refreshments will be available (for a small donation) and entry to the Natural History Museum is free, so you might like to have a look around before or after the meeting - there is plenty to see! Details on how to get the museum can be found here: http://www.nhm.ac.uk/visit/getting-here.html
