Annual General Meeting

Notice of Annual General Meeting

Tuesday 28th November 2017 at 6:45pm for 7:00pm

Council Chambers, Dunbar Town House, High Street, Dunbar


(i) Report of year’s activities

(ii) Filling any vacancies on Council[1]

(iii) Other competent business

 Non-members will be warmly welcomed and after the AGM business – at 7:30pm in the Community Room – Craig Pritchett will give an illustrated talk on Hutton and Siccar Point entitled

Peering into the Abyss of Time: Siccar Point

Craig’s talk will give his purely personal ‘take’ on what is undoubtedly a local wonder and well worth a visit, especially if you can manage that slightly awkward descent and confront the extraordinary rock formations head on and close-up, as Hutton did, in 1788, when he and his two companions got off their boat at Siccar Point. Craig will also explain the Unconformity’s main contours and its significance in lay-terms and to convey Hutton’s claim (made by others) to be the Father of Modern Geology, which is undoubtedly strong. Photographs that Craig and his daughter took on a recent descent to Siccar Point will provide a dramatic backdrop to this illustrated talk.

[1] Nominations for Council accompanied with the nominee’s agreement in writing and items for consideration under other competent business should be lodged with the Secretary, c/o John Muir’s Birthplace Museum, 126 High Street, Dunbar, EH42 1JJ by Friday 24th November 2017.
