The UK's Nationwide Geology Club for Children

Clare Byrne

We're delighted that Clare Byrne became Rockwatch Chair in January 2023. Professionally Clare trained as a physicist, teaching GCSE and A Level Physics until her recent retirement. In the meantime she also learnt rather a lot of geology which she enjoyed, so now is happy to put that knowledge into practice. Having joined Rockwatch on a residential field trip more than 20 years ago, Clare became hooked on geology and attended the annual residential field trip for the following 10 years with her family thereafter. Over the years, Clare has helped out at numerous Rockwatch events and has been considered a friend and 'one of the team' long before becoming Chair. In a message about forthcoming field trips to members Clare recently said, "I am really looking forward to meeting Rockwatchers who have been starved of fossils over the last couple of years and whose enthusiasm will no doubt be even more evident than usual in 2023."
