Dear all

I am looking forward to seeing you all on Wednesday at our first BERG meeting -5.30 pm in the Psychology Common Room (3A94, Cottrell Building).

This will be introductions, social catch up and a show of photos by Peter Hancock from his trip to Shetland. We shall also use this opportunity to take new photos of the group for the BERG website!

We shall also make an effort to finalise the programme which is already looking excellent - thanks to all those who have signed up.

We still have slots free (note that Bethan may move her presentation to December due to popular demand), and are looking for volunteers. Remember that you don't need a polished talk - you can offer to lead a discussion on a  journal paper, or present research ideas etc.
