Kickstart 2018/9: Geology and Fossils

Geology: a science that deals with the history of the earth and its life, especially as recorded in rocks.
Fossils: the remains, impressions or traces of ancient life that have been preserved by natural processes.


Our new theme for 2018-2019 is Geology and Fossils.  Please contact a member of the regional committee to purchase our booklet for £5.00.  Purchase of the booklet assists keeping Kickstart going and is required to take part in the programme. Booklets may be bought to Regional Day.

We hope you have enjoyed one or more of the workshops and are full of ideas to make an item for display at our exhibitions.  This year we are exhibiting at the Ten 2 Gallery in Hinckley during July, at the National Stone Centre in Wirksworth in September and at the British Geological Survey Centre premises in Keyworth (south Nottinghamshire) during their Open Day in October.

The British Geological Survey Centre (BGS) HQ is in our Region at Keyworth, and it is worth a visit.  There is a 'walk through time' experience normally open from 09.00 to 16.30 Monday to Friday (except public holidays and other advertised closures) and also a restaurant for refreshments.
