Planned Gatherings

We hold regular monthly meetings for informal chats about astronomy (and occasionally other things!) on the last Thursday of the month. We usually stroll up to the New Inn to finish the evening’s discussion. Meetings are outlined below and also available via Meetup

All with an interest in astronomy are welcome from beginners to old hands.
