  Hi all. Regretfully, the Committee have decided to cancel the Observing evening Thursday, 16th December, due to the spread of the Omicron variant of Covid, which seems to be taking over everything.

     This is a safety measure; as we don`t want to be in close contact with people at this time and to be on the safe side. Let us hope that we can meet up for the  Observing evening on Thursday, the 20th January 2022 when hopefully things will be better.

      This decision has not been taken lightly but to safeguard members.

     Cheers Doug.
Always look on the bright side of life ...



My thanks to the committee for reaching a sensible conclusion on a hard choice.

Given the age range of the membership it is far better to be safe than sorry.
