HydSoc@TheMagpie: Then and Now is an afternoon networking event celebrating how the hydrographic pioneers and innovators of the last 50 years have influenced and inspired contemporary techniques and equipment.

Forty-five years after the founding of The Hydrographic Society, and just a few days after World Hydrography Day, this event will take place at The Magpie in Sunbury. Located on the picturesque banks of the Thames, the inn played host to over 80 meetings of the Society's first Region (Home Counties West - now Southern).

The Magpie and those gatherings are now part of the Society's folklore and were recounted by Roger Scrivens FHydSoc in Soundings No. 64 which can be downloaded.    

The afternoon will feature a series of presentations contrasting 'Then & Now', equipment displays, slide shows, afternoon tea and plenty of networking opportunities.

Further details about The Magpie, car parking and local hotels can be downloaded below.
