The recent announcement by the Government, describing the roadmap towards removing Covid related restrictions has been really good news.
As a result, we are currently talking to the managers of the venues that we use, about a possible timetable to restarting our meetings.
Needless to say, the situation will remain fluid for some time, but at present we are hoping to resume our monthly lectures at the Southwick Community Centre during the first week in August and the Observation Group (TOG) meetings at the Westdene Green Community Barn on the 15th September.
As soon as we know more, we will email members directly and update this webpage accordingly.
We are an astronomical society of about 50 members covering the Adur Valley area of West Sussex.
Our membership ranges from complete beginners to experienced astronomers and everything we do is based on the premise that astronomy can and should be enjoyed by everyone. We have two monthly meetings.
One is held at the Southwick Community Centre. This is usually lecture based and frequently with external speakers, covering a wide selection of astronomical subjects to suit all interests.
The other meeting covers practical astronomy and is held at the Westdene Green Community Barn, Brighton. So, if you are thinking of buying a telescope, already have one and want to learn more, want to have a look through a telescope or binoculars or take images of the night sky then come along and meet the members. Help and advice is always on hand.
Both beginners and the experienced individuals are welcome to our Society and whether you are interested in visual astronomy, astrophotography, or just learning more about astronomy in general, we are sure that you will find something to interest you.
