Summer's end  

Rosedale ShowUnseasonal weather, glorious mud and one of our leaders' accident (Paul is much better now thankfully), nothing stops your Geology Trust! We've had a packed summer with Fossil Fun Days at Beck Isle Museum, joint walks with Yorkshire Wildlife Trust, plenty of fossil walks in Robin Hood's Bay. We've given a prize at the Robin Hood's Bay Horticultural & Craft Show for the best ammonite and the RHB Beavers Troupe won a set of our publications and a guided fossil walk with Mike Windle later in September.

We've received support from York Potash to take part in the Festival of Yorkshire on 4th August and for Mike Windle to train Josh Kelly as an intern to the Geology Trust for the next few months. We've enjoyed our second dry and sunny Rosedale Show, sharing our marquee with the Rosedale History Society. Thank you to all of you who helped with the marquee and the activities or came to visit us on the day. We will have a Rosedale Ramble on 11th October from 10 to 5. It is a strenuous 11 miles walk starting from the award-winning White Horse Farm Inn.

The Marquee GangWe have made progress on our Bay of Heritage project and have started organising the Celebration of our Community event on 10th November. All associations, groups, societies, museums, clubs, interested individuals from Robin Hood's Bay and surrounding villages are invited to take a space for a display of what they do and a chance to chat to local people about their interests, their collections, what they offer. Please book free space for your group with Bénédicte by calling 01947 881000 or email On the 10th November from 2 to 6pm, everybody is welcome to join us at the Village Hall and celebrate all the great and little things that happen in Bay. The entrance is free and refreshments will be available.

Victorian Geologists will have a Rock & Fossil Road-Show at the Robin Hood's Bay Victorian Weekend on 8th & 9th December in the bottom bar of Ye Dolphin Pub. Mary Anning has confirmed that she will attend and you might recognise a 'moustachioed' gentleman who takes the identity of several illustrious geologists. It'll be the last public event of the year with the Geology Trust but let's not rush ahead. Enjoy the autumn!
