We would like to apologise to those who arrived at Chelveston Village Hall on Monday 19th June.  Unfortunately we received very short notice from our planned speaker that they were unable to attend.  At such notice it was not possible to arrange alternative options and therefore a decision was made to cancel the meeting.  Whilst we attempted to alert people by Facebook and Twitter, we are aware that this will likely have only been received by a few people.  We again apologise to all.

Starnight Observing Sessions:  Due to the twilight evenings, our Friday evening observing sessions are currently taking a break.  They will be returning in early September.

Next Chelveston Meeting: Monday 17th July:  ‘The Outer Planets’ a lecture by Jerry Workman.  Chelveston Village Hall, Caldecott Road Chelveston NN9 6AT at 8pm.  Admission £3 per person including tea/coffee and biscuits.   Note that access to the hall is now through the double doors at the rear of the village hall.

Next Sudborough Meeting: Thursday 6th July:  Astronomical Aspects meeting.  If clear, we’ll also be doing a bit of stargazing and there will be our usual ‘Sky Guide’.    Sudborough Village Hall, Main Street, Sudborough at 8pm. Admission £2.
