Chideock Society Event: The Story of the West Dorset Coast – Tuesday October 11th

seatown2The most dynamic place on the planet is the shoreline. The only place where atmosphere, rock, earth and ocean meet and interact. Here, all the energy of the sun is used in erosion and transport of beach material by waves. Beaches move and change on a minute by minute basis. Storms dramatically alter familiar places. Cliff falls, flow and slide as they go down to the sea in slips. This presentation by Professor Denys Brunsden tells the story of the Dorset coast. Professor Denys Brunsden, a geomorphologist of distinction, recognised internationally as an expert on landslides, will share his store of knowledge, including  up to date information, on the Dorset coastline he has loved and studied over many years. Known to many local people, as ‘Den’ his presentations are full of interest and humour. Not to be missed.  The event will also include a tasty cheese and cider supper, with the usual tea and coffee available. There will also be an excellent raffle. The illustrated talk will be followed by the Chideock Society AGM, which will be run in a much streamlined fashion, with annual reports, accounts etc . sent to all members beforehand in a further email. Following our previous member consultation, there will be a small charge for all those attending this event. 11th October, Village Hall, 7.15 for 7.30 Members: £ 3.00 . Visitors very welcome: £ 6.00 All proceeds raised will go towards funding Society activity, such as the Tree Planting and Conservation projects.
