Introducing EMAS 2017-18

Dear Members

I hope you had a pleasant summer in spite of the indifferent weather.

In a few days EMAS will begin the thirtieth year of its existence.  A programme of trips and lectures is being organised to celebrate this special year.  Our President, Jon Cotton and founder David Beard, will give lectures before Christmas and a past President, Harvey Sheldon, will end the year with a lecture in October 2018.

I am pleased to report that so far there has been a good response to the Spring Tour to the Isle of Man and Dave’s December lecture will relate to this tour.  Instead of a Summer Tour in 2018 there will be an Autumn Tour to Devon and Cornwall with David Beard.

A Resumè is enclosed in this mailshot detailing events already arranged.  I am pleased to say the postponed Gloucester field trip will take place next March.  (You can find details of future EMAS events here...)

Among the field trips being arranged are trips to Bristol as well as Prehistoric and Roman locations – not to mention some other surprises.  One, I hope, pleasant surprise will be a 30th Birthday Party on 4th August 2018 at 50 School Lane.  I trust as many of you as possible will keep the date free and join us for a great celebration.

An EMAS Programme for 2017-2018 and membership forms will be sent out later in October.  We look forward to seeing some of you at the November 2017 events.

With thanks and very best wishes.
