'The Nottingham Astronomical Society are a friendly group of amateur astronomers from all walks of life. Whilst providing regular guest speaker events, we encourage active observing. The Society owns and operates an observatory near Cotgrave. We are very active in public outreach, partnering with regional organisations, educational establishments and the BBC. We support several specialist interest groups, including astrophotography, radio astronomy and dark skies campaigning; we also maintain close ties with other astronomical societies and university research departments.'

'The Cathedral and Parish Church of the Blessed Virgin Mary has stood in the centre of Southwell for centuries. The Minster as it is known locally is a beacon of living faith for the people of Nottinghamshire, witnessing through the centuries to God’s love for his people, and today inspiring all who come as pilgrims or tourists ... The Minster hosts a range of events throughout the year, many of them are free of charge whilst some are provided as a means of fundraising for the numerous things we need to do to maintain the Minster and to keep it free for all those who visit us. Throughout the year we aim to have a balanced programme of events that we hope will appeal to a wide range of people.'

'The Society exists to protect and enhance the principal Conservation Areas which include the Village core and Wollaton Park. In order to do that the Society encourages historic research and seeks to encourage people living in all parts of Wollaton and Wollaton Park to learn more about the history of the area and thereby to help ensure its survival and conservation. In order to achieve that, the Society holds a number of talks on local history during winter months and, in the summer, in addition to opening the Dovecote Museum, provides a number of guided walks around the area of greater Wollaton and visits to other historical sites of interest.'
