Wishing you all a Happy Christmas

We hope you enjoyed some time in the Geopark during the year. Maybe you visited one of the country parks or stately homes or museums or you tried out one or more of the many geology, wildlife, history and landscape trails. Maybe you visited the exhibitions at Worcester Cathedral or the Severn Valley Railway

GeoFest again took place in June, July and August with plenty of events and activities, all drawn from the summer programmes of the Geopark members, enabling a very comprehensive GeoFest programme to be delivered. We hope you managed to join in. As usual the stories and events delivered by the many venues across the 800 square miles of the Geopark were considerable.

Although the Geopark started life as essentially an area of outstanding geology and associated landscape it has, much to its benefit, expanded to include wildlife, archaeology, heritage, science and art. We hope you found all this of interest.

Next year marks the 20th anniversary of the formation of the Geopark. We will give out more information in the new year. But for now we wish you all a happy and peaceful Christmas.

Here are some highlights in pictures from the year.
