Important Notice

On a DASH Observing night, observing should be the first priority. That being said after consultation of the local weather trends and people on the ground , and in the event of inclement weather we will be in the village hall for astro workshops, to be lead by the needs of the members. So if you have questions or problems, let us know and we will see if we can help.

 

So your actions on the night should be,  1st :- check the common car park. 2nd :- the village hall.

 

We will endeavour to give as much notice as possible, but the latest will be 3:00pm on the day of observing.
