The GFYS monthly circulation was initiated by the Geologists Association (GA) during the Covid lockdown period when normal activities were suspended. This has proved very popular and highlights the large amount of diverse geoscience material available on the internet. With the return of field trips and meetings the GA decided to cease circulating the GFYS newsletter at the end of 2023. Acknowledging the efforts local affiliated societies have gone through to keep their members involved throughout the pandemic, local groups were invited to host the GFYS for 1 month in its final year. The video library WGCG had put together during this time was a key factor underlying the GAs early invitation to WGCG to participate.
