Changes to Registration

Due to increasing costs in delivering the Soils in the South East Workshop, a modest fee will be required to attend future events. The introduction of a fee allows us to continue delivering the Workshop Series and provide refreshments and a buffet lunch during the session breaks to maximise networking opportunities.

Thus, from and including Workshop 15, a fee of £25 will be required to attend the meeting (if paid in advance), or £30 if paying on arrival. The registration fee can be paid by BACS, cheque, or cash. For further information on Workshop 15, and the change in the registration process, please contact Marilyn Croucher on, including for BACS payment information
