CANCELLED Caerdeon Residential Meeting 2020

Merionethshire 24th – 27th July 2020

Sally Peacock

The few days we spend at Caerdeon each year are a regular and much enjoyed event in the field meeting programme and many participants return year after year. Each day there will be a planned choice of different walks, or people may prefer to follow their own recording inclinations. Local habitats include dune systems, broad-leaved sessile oak woodland, lowland heath, blanket bog, riverine habitats, montane, etc. The purpose of the meeting is to update records for the vice-county, particularly in less-visited tetrads; each day, some groups focus on remoter areas, with others on more readily accessible terrain.

We stay at Caerdeon (www.hope.ac.uk/caerdeon/), Liverpool Hope University’s Outdoor Education Centre which is set in wooded grounds and enjoys “a magnificent view of Cader (Idris)” (Charles Darwin). The fee (around £165) covers full board, including dinner, packed lunches and bed and breakfast, for three days. Accommodation will be singly in dormitory-style rooms or the price will be slightly discounted for people willing to share. A good and plentiful choice of food is available at each meal and participants bring their own wine. Evenings may be spent in the workroom discussing the finds of the day; where you can safely leave your own laptop and microscope. There is a maximum of about 18 participants. 17th March: the organisers have, with great regret, decided to cancel this meeting for 2020. They hope to run it again in 2021.
