    Fund Raising

    Fund Raising

    Well we cant build this without the money folks so we are fundraising down at the Strand ( McKinley St roundabout) on Tuesday evenings - come and have a look through the group's telescopes and if you like what you see feel free to drop a coin ( or note) into the tin - with thanks

    We'll also show the Sun through solar scopes on Sunday afternoons further along the Strand on the city side of Strand park near the skydivers - come and see our nearest star boiling away and shooting out  spectacular flares like these.
