I'd like to wish you all a Merry Christmas and all the best for 2011. My apologies to those attending the Christmas Social last week, unfortunately I was unable to attend due to unforeseen circumstances at home.
Hopefully people are taking advantage of the long run of clear (if VERY cold) nights we have been having.
As an early heads up, we will be needing the help of as many members as possible on 15th January for our Skywatch event linked to BBC Stargazing LIVE. We will have observing sessions open to the public in Memorial Gardens and indoor displays and activities in St Joseph's Church Hall. Se we need members to help out by bringing along telescopes, binoculars and other equipment if possible. If not please just come along and help man displays, or show people the night sky.
If you can help please reserve the date in your diary and let me now via email so we can refine our planning.
Stuart has a special blog with details of all the Cumbria events here.
All the best.
