9 July. The Society's 20th Annual Symposium will be held at St. Peter's Church Hall, Selsey, on Saturday 9 July starting at 11.00. The theme is 'Fossils, Monsters and Roman Heads. The programme will include Julian Munby FSA on 'Chichester and Selsey Landscapes' and other papers to be arranged. This will be followed by a late lunch at the Seal Hotel, Selsey. After lunch, David Bone will lead the Society on a walk entitled 'Views of Selsey Past. Geology and Coastal Change through the eyes of Heron-Allen'. To book for the Symposium please e-mail our Honorary Secretary, Juliet Field at jools.fielf@btinternet.com by 21 June. Lunch reservations must be made before then as we have to order food in advance. We hope to include a short musical interlude on the EH-A organ in St Peter’s Church, with Kate Adcock.


Following the recent death of our Chairman Tim McCann, we regret that the Society is currently unable to answer any requests for information relating to Heron-Allen researches. We will update the website when we have further news on this.
