Contributor Survey

We recently emailed out a survey form to all site members who have uploaded a photo in the last three years. It was on Sunday 23 April at 16:33, subject: Contributor Survey. If you didn't see it, please check your spam and junk folders as well as your regular inbox. The email contains a link to a Google Form.

Thank you to everyone who has completed the survey to date. We're starting to peruse the interim results. Your responses will help us in several areas, not least our bids for funding.

If you change your email address for Geograph communications, please record the new address on your profile page.

Many thanks from the trustees.

2017 Geograph Meet & AGM, Bristol sign up

Monday 26 June only two months away! Please register your interest on this short Google form. It's open to all. Details have been posted on the Events page as well. There is a continuing forum discussion starting here. Company members will receive papers towards the end of May.

The venue (also on the form) is the Holiday Inn Bristol City Centre, Bond Street, Bristol BS1 3LE. We're waiting for confirmation of the B&B rate and parking arrangements on the day and for those staying over.

Bristol is an exciting city to visit and easy to get to. It is rich in history, especially social, mercantile and transport history; it has a varied local geography formed from a complex geology.

The trustees look forward to another enjoyable occasion and a good attendance. Open to all.
