SWGA Activities

Since many of the South-East Wales RIGS group members are also active in the South Wales Geologists’ Association, since the RIGS activities also form part of the SWGA committee meeting discussions, and since some recent field trips concerned themselves with RIGS sites, I thought it might be useful to list recent SWGA activities (activities that have been completed are greyed out).
