Going to the poles - the science and politics of Arctic and Antarctic research
Please join us for the first South Cambs Lib Dems Supper Club of 2020 on Friday 7th February at Foxton Village Hall. A homemade supper will be followed by a talk by Dr Mike Prior-Jones about research in polar regions.
Supper Clubs are social events and are open to all, not just Lib Dem members. Please bring your friends, family and neighbours along too!
Foxton Village Hall is a ten-minute walk from Foxton Station, with trains from Cambridge every half hour.
About the speaker
Dr Mike Prior-Jones works for Cardiff University, building instruments to study glaciers, following a varied career as an electronic engineer in both the public and private sectors. He has made four trips to Antarctica, including spending the winter on a British Antarctic Survey station, and went on a scientific expedition to Greenland last year. He has a longstanding interest in the environmental sciences, and the political and diplomatic reasons why governments choose to fund polar research. He is a member of Cambridge Lib Dems, and also vice-chair of the A10 Corridor Cycle Campaign, which aims to improve provision for cycling and walking in the area between Cambridge and Royston.
