The Society exists to promote the study of all aspects
of the geology of Norfolk.
By "geology" we mean the science in its broadest sense,
including geomorphology, (the study of landforms), palaeontology,
(all aspects relating to fossils), and site conservation.
Any individual over the age of 16 may apply to become an ordinary
member of the Society; the annual subscription is £10.
Persons in full time education may join for 50%
of the ordinary membership fee. Universities, libraries and other
organisations may join for an annual subscription of £28.
In both cases, subscriptions are due on joining and on every 1st
Our members include ordinary citizens, amateur and professional
geologists, teachers and university professors, all with an interest
in the Society's aims.
As an amateur Society we place especial emphasis on making the
topics we discuss intelligable to ordinary people, only using
jargon after we have explained it. This is especially important
bearing in mind that our lectures are all open to the General
Public free of charge.
The Society is also a member of the Geologists' Association which
entitles our members to access the G.A.'s library.
There is no requirement for potential members to be resident
