Source No source link supplied


The next talk will be given by Dr. Sarah Duggidan a Research Fellow in the Geography and Environmental Department at Reading University.

She will be talking about ‘ Soils’. The subject of soils and the current problems of soil degradation tend to be masked by the emphasis on climate change. Soil health is another looming problem for the planet.

Sarah’s talk will cover how soils are formed, the biodiversity of soils and the contemporary problems with soils

The Regency Suite is above the Conservative Club in Shanklin in Palmerston Road just off the High Street.

The nearest car parks are in Landguard Road and Orchardleigh Road, both only two or three minutes walk to the Conservative Club. Parking is free after 6pm.

As we have to pay a rent for the facilities, we have to ask for a donation of at least £3 on the door to make sure we cover all our expenses. i.e. the rent, cost of speakers' travel expenses and a meal, plus overnight accommodation if needed.
