MAGAZINES

Issues on line up to June 2018


There are new details, including a new membership and renewal form as a downloadable PDF, on the ABOUT page

 

A page has been set up in the MENU - OBSERVING - where the maps, details and photographs can now be found

However these outdoor meetings all depend on weather conditions, so arrangements are likely to be made close to any particular date, or could change that day. Consequently having your email and/or mobile phone number is getting more vital as you can be notified up to the minute. So - as we have asked before - anyone who hasn't already done so, (and are willing to do so), please send this and your mobile phone number to - observing@ashastro.co.uk
(This goes to Chairman: Jim Webb; Secretary/Membership Secretary: Alister Innes and Treasurer: Kyri Voskou.)

This means they can text if necessary.

The Facebook page will also be used for the most up-to-date information
