People are welcome to attend most events organised by the SMG or myself, although it useful to let us know if you are thinking of coming along as numbers are restricted at some meetings. We encourage people to come along to meetings, it is a good way to share experiences, learn and socialise. Moth trapping somewhere in the middle of the countryside when it's dark is more enjoyable when there are a few others around.
The Suffolk Moth Group holds moth nights on Friday or Saturday nights from May to September, with additional meetings during the day or at other times of the year.
Doors will open at 11.00am for setting up, refreshments and general chat and looking at exhibits. Some of the group will be lunching in the pub from 12.00pm onwards. and the formal meeting will start at 1.15pm with picture shows and talks. The meeting will finish at 4.15pm. I should be back from the pub at 1.00pm to make sure that the hall is open for the afternoon session.
The day's entertainment is entirely dependent on members bringing along items of interest or being prepared to give a short/long talk. I will be bringing a digital projector for those with digital presentations or images. If anyone would like to show slides I can provide a slide projector if they let me know beforehand. Tables will also be provided for those with exhibits. It would be useful if you are intending on giving a presentation to let me know. Refreshments will be provided.
If you are doing a Powerpoint presentation then you should save it in OpenOffice format or if you use Microsoft Office then Office 2007 format or earlier. I do not have Microsoft Office but do have Powerpoint 2007 viewer. If in doubt about this get in touch with me.
Bucklesham Village Hall is not far from the Nacton A12/A14 roundabout to the east of Ipswich. From the A12/A14 roundabout take the minor exit after the A12 exit but before the A14 Felixstowe exit. This exit is signposted to Bucklesham and leads via a single track road to Bucklesham Village. At the end of this road you will reach the village, at the T junction turn right into Bucklesham Road. Take the next right turn into Levington Lane and the village hall is a short distance down the lane on the right.
A map of the location can be viewed by following this link. The OS Grid Reference for the hall is TM242417. If you need any more detailed instructions in how to get there then do get in contact with myself.
