Feedback ….The money you so kindly gave us has helped us so much with the purchase of books and resources that they have been able to utilise to help them fully understand the content of the course.  They have greatly enjoyed analysing and identifying all the wonderful specimens that have been given to us and are so grateful to all of you for your support……. ….Just a quick note to let you know that we have not forgotten the Tomlinson Brown Trust's support for our recent Geology fieldtrip to South Wales. The trip was a great success and the students are currently completing their coursework submissions…. …..we thank the organisations that have funded the Earthquake Observatory Project include the Forestry Commission, the Geological Society, the Herefordshire and Worcestershire Earth Heritage Trust, the Jeremy Willson Charitable Trust, the Petroleum Exploration Society of Great Britain, the Royal Astronomical Society, the Tomlinson Brown Trust, the University of Worcester and Welcome to our Future (Severn Waste Fund)
