Everyone is welcome to join their local WI group and also local astronomer and author Stuart Atkinson. Weather depending, we have the option of heading out to the castle to do some stargazing. If it’s cloudy and drizzly, then no worries, Stuart has plenty of beautiful slides and interesting things to tell us about the night sky.
Please check the forecast and come prepared for venturing outside if the weather looks good and a clear sky.
Meetings are free to members and £4 to non-members.
