Hi all
 

I thought you might be interested to know that Rob and I have agreed a temporary exhibition of our Chalk & Flint fossil collections at the Littlehampton Museum next April. We plan to display some of our best finds made across Sussex during our combined 55 years of collecting!

 

Details to follow closer to the time.

 

Roy

Hi all
 

Just to let you know the exhibition of Robert's and my chalk&flint fossil collections, as well as some guest specimens, goes on display from this Saturday at the Littlehampton Museum. I visited the museum at the weekend and was really impressed with the effort they've gone to in terms of information boards to be displayed alongside the fossils. Worth a visit if you're within easy reach.

Well done Roy & Robert ! Thumbs Up
Maybe Roy should consider changing his surname to Hopkirk & the collection to "Randall & Hopkirk -Deceased Lifeforms" ? Big smile 

Sorry ! lol

Hi Byron/all
 

We'll be taking lots of photos on Saturday and will upload to the DF Facebook page, and also on the Discuss Fossils forum.

 

As a taste of what's on show, here's one of the display cabinets...

If you don't look, you won't find.

Wow! Have to say I was a bit overwhelmed by the exhibition today. Was great to see so many fine specimen's of such high quality all together like that. Beats what I saw at the NHM hands down. Think a second viewing may be required. 
Excellent job Robert and Roy.

I finally got around to seeing this today, with my son (Vert Finder). A fantastic display of brilliantly prepped fossils, well done.

Took a second trip to Littlehampton today to check out this awesome display. Had a bit more time to look at the specimens and appreciate the prep work. Totally inspiring.

Depends how much walking the high street dressed as an ammonite is worth?
