There is an opportunity for our members to join the GCG stall at the 2016 Lyme Regis Fossil Festival on Sat 30th April to Sun 1st May. You can find details of the festival at the following address: http://www.fossilfestival.co.uk/. We are running our "Be a Curator" activity, which demonstrates the importance of curation and encourages people to curate their own fossil finds. We are asking people to help on the stall for around four hours (or whatever you can manage), and we may be able to contribute towards your travel and subsistence. It's a really fun event with a great atmosphere and lots of families getting enthusiastic about fossils. If you are interested, please contact Luanne Meehitiya on luanne.meehitiya@birminghammuseums.org.uk
