The Open University Geological Society supports the study of geology and other earth sciences by providing opportunities for members to learn via field trips, talks, workshops and conferences led by experts in their fields.
The Society was founded in 1984 at the Booth Museum of Natural History, Brighton, and still our Headquarters. They have about 90 members in total, providing a wide range of backgrounds, interests, professions and ages. They have a calendar of meetings starting with our monthly meetings on the first Wednesday of each month from October to April.
The aim of the Society is to promote interest in geology and its allied sciences for people of all levels of geological knowledge, ranging from the interested amateur up to professional geologist.
The meetings are held in The Barley Room, The Maltings, Farnham, generally on the second Friday of the month (7.30 for 8.00pm).

In addition to Ken Brooks, the original committee included currently active members John Boryer and Jim Priestley.
