Get to know some of the East of England Committee members and what they get up to in their spare time at this fun virtual get-together, featuring short presentations from Clare Brown, Michael Hand, Christopher Jones and Jane Murphy.
Chris has always been fascinated by remote and hard to reach places. Will he ever visit them? Possibly? Probably? Either way, he is going to share some incredible stories of the places that he visited so far.
Clare trained as an expedition medic at the Society and will share some of her experiences working with a group of school children as they explored various aspects of Kenya.
Jane is taking us to both the Arctic and Antarctic - a real feast for your eyes. Jane is a keen, award winning photographer, so grab a device with the highest screen resolution for the best experience.
Michael will complete the evening with recollections of being caught up in the pro-jallikattu protests which took place in January 2017 in several locations across the Indian state of Tamil Nadu and the feeling of relief when finally reaching Kerala.
This event has been organised by the East of England regional committee.
