Crewkerne And District Astronomical Society
Crewkerne and District Astronomical Society was formed in 2002 with around 24 members. The society now has a membership of nearly 50.
Our meetings are held on the third Wednesday of every month starting at 7.30pm at St Bartholomew’s Church Hall in Crewkerne and are open to all. No previous experience or knowledge of astronomy is required. If you are generally interested in ‘what’s up there’, or would like to know where to start in astronomy you will be particularly welcome. Of course, experienced astronomers are welcome too.
One of the main aims of the Society is to ‘spread the word’ and to share our own interest and pleasure in astronomy with others. We have telescopes for the use of members who can also use our library.
We look forward to seeing you.
7.30pm Wednesday 17 April, at St Bartholomew’s Church Hall, Abbey St, Crewkerne (map)
