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 where it is doubtful, but not certain of bad seeing conditions, we will look at the conditions on the common and make a final decision to transfer to the Crown, or alternatively, the White Horse Westleton.

 

So your actions on the night should be,  1st :- check the common car park. 2nd :- the Crown back room, and finally :- if the Crown is shut due to a private function try the White Horse....

 

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