Stravaiging round the New Zealand coast (without Neil Oliver!)
Monday 28 October 2019 at 3.00pm
40 years a professional geologist with GNS Science (and predecessors) – possibly best known as ‘the geologist at Te Papa’ and as a science communicator, Dr Hamish Campbell will give an illustrated account of some of his adventures as a co-presenter on ‘Coast New Zealand’ (3 series of episodes produced by Auckland based Great Southern Television in 2016, ’17, ’18) – “behind every co-presenter is a great Scot”. As usual this meeting will include a short review of VUWSIG in 2019 and look forward to 2020.
This is Labour Day and the Law School building will not be open, so we shall meet at a different – and exciting – location! The Long Hall at the end of Point Jerningham in Roseneath.
How to get to The Long Hall:
- At the east end of Oriental Bay go up Carlton Gore Road; as you approach the big block of the Gateways flats you will see St. Barnabas Church; go down the drive on the left of it to Roseneath School – there is parking on the playground. From there take the indicated path down to the Long Hall.
- If walking up from Oriental Bay you can take the path to the Saluting Battery (alongside the hall).
- Bus number 14 is scheduled to run every half hour at quarter past and quarter to the hour from the Bus Station; route starts in Wilton. Get off at St. Barnabas Church stop. The one leaving at 2.15pm would seem best to fit in with the meeting time.
- Any queries re access or transport please phone Edith 388-8069 preferably by Friday 25th.
