Geograph Meet & AGM 2017, Bristol there's still time to register

Of course you can just turn up but it's better to sign up!

The occasion is open to all, you don't have to be a company member. Come and meet your fellow-Geographers in Bristol, a city that's full of interest.

We've agreed the programme for the day, Monday 26 June. Note that the start time is more or less as announced previously but we've put the formal AGM last instead of first.

Venue: Holiday Inn Bristol City Centre, Bond Street, Bristol BS1 3LE. We are on the first floor in 'Academy 1 & 2'. Free parking on the day but Bristol has two Park & Ride sites, is easy to get to by rail, and has buses.
