Welcome to the North Staffordshire Group of the Geologists’ Association (NSGGA).

The NSGGA is the regional group of the Geologists’ Association in North Staffordshire.

Lecture meetings are held during the autumn and winter, at 7.30pm usually on the second Thursday of the month. Due to coronavirus restrictions, lectures will be held online via Zoom for at least the remainder of Winter 2021/22. NSGGA members will receive a Zoom link via email, non-members can request a link via the contacts page.

Field meetings are usually held at approximately monthly intervals over the spring and summer. Hopefully the field programme will recommence in spring 2022.
