By | Field Trip Reports | No Comments

The highlight of the year for the SDGS as far as the organised field trips go would have to be the weekend away. Here are just a few of the photos taken from this year’s weekender to the Isle of Wight.

They were submitted by Sandy and as you can clearly see a lot of fun was had by all.

There should be a full write up to follow very soon…but what we really need is to add more photos to this report from members who attended this fun outing.

So let’s get posting.











The Stamford and District Geological Society are now affiliated with the UKGE limited Geological and Microscopy products

““logo1New website – based on customer feedback

Welcome to our new site, with hundreds of new features.

1 Nov 13

Our previous website has been running 10 years, and served us well during that time. But technology has moved on and so has website design. Our new website uses the latest technology, security and modern day features to bring you, our customers, the very best service we can provide.

Reviews – You can now write or read other peoples product reviews. Customer reviews are becoming an important part of researching before you buy.

Media Rich – From high resolution images, and image galleries, to PDF downloads for user guides and information packs, we try to give you as much information as possible. We are also gradually introducing videos of products.

Customer Login – The customer login experience has changed. New account management, multiple addresses, even EU VAT number checking. Everything has been improved.

Improve Navigation – The entire website navigation experience has changed, making it easier for you to find products. Related products, best selling products, and even “customers who purchased these also purchased…”. These cross-selling links provide the customer with ease of navigation.

Responsive – Our new website has been built with a responsive framework, this means that it will reshape for various devices. Fully compatible with Desktops, Touchscreen Tablets and Smartphones. The site will automatically load in compact mode for small devices.

Wholesale – Our previous website had only a few selected wholesale products, now, we offer wholesale and trade prices on our full range of products. Once approved, the website will display prices correct for your account type meaning you no longer need to contact us for a quote.

Students – Automatic detection of student accounts, means that 10% is added without even needing to apply (*providing a valid “” email is used).

Fast and Secure – Build using the cutting edge of technology and the very latest in security.

These are just a few of the hundreds of improvements you will find! Everything has changed and improved. We have been working on this new site for 18 months.

This is it!
