Bedfordshire Geology Group (BGG) are holding the official opening of the disability access facilities at Potton Scout Hut Quarry on Saturday March 23rd, 2019 from 11am until 3pm. Everyone is welcome to this educationally important geological site. The site is part of an array of geoconservation projects undertaken by BGG for the Greensand Country Landscape Partnership (GCLP)*.
An important aspect of this project has been to facilitate greater and easier access to geological sites. To deliver this, BGG has cleared this Potton exposure, improved its pathways and constructed a new walkway and railings. A new interpretation board has also been designed. A wheelchair access ramp has been installed so people can get hands-on access to the exposure. A new interpretation board will enhance the site for those with impaired eyesight.
We will have stalls of information and fun activities for all ages. Come along and enjoy the day with a lovely cup of tea or coffee and a slice of cake.
Come along on the day and find out more or contact Bev Fowlston, BGG project manager on 07919158622 or email email@example.com for more information.

11am Gates open
12 – 12.30 Introduction & presentation on the Greensand Country
12.30pm Ribbon cutting ceremony
1pm – 3pm Refreshments, activities & promotions
