Note change of date, time and venue from that previously advertised.

Branch AGM, and President’s Lecture to be given by Dr Robin Wootton BSc, PhD, FLS, Hon FRES.

We are fortunate to have as our speaker Dr Robin Wootton, current President of the Devonshire Association and an eminent zoologist, entomologist, biomechanicist (and occasional palaeoentomologist). Robin taught at Exeter University for 41 years where he is presently an honorary research fellow. He has been a member of the DA since the 1960’s.

His lecture is entitled “Gossamer Engineering: Why insect wings are wonderful”. Discover how the shape and bending of an insect’s wings determine its flight.

This year our AGM is being held at an outstanding venue: Moreton House, built in classical style in 1824 and set in spacious grounds. Parking is ample and a light buffet lunch will be available after the meeting. There will be welcome teas and coffee on arrival and entrance will be free.

All members and those who wish to know more about the Association are invited to attend. Advanced booking is advised. A buffet lunch will be available (cost £10 per person) at Moreton House after the meeting which must be booked in advance. Please contact the Organiser (details below) before 1 April for booking forms or advise the Branch Secretary direct by email before 3 April.
