Local Society: Altrincham

Category Altrincham

'We are a friendly society of around 30 people who meet regularly to talk about and enjoy the night sky. We have several telescopes and other pieces of equipment which can be borrowed by society members for their own use. Throughout the year we meet on the first Friday of each month (except July and August) at 8pm until 10pm ... At these monthly meetings we discuss the society's business and have an event such as a lecture, video, slide show etc.'

'The Society was formed in 1908. A group of 7 men met on the 4th January in a room of the Free Library in Altrincham. The aim was to form a society to promote the knowledge, observation, recording and protection of all forms of nature ...  Meetings are held on the second Tuesday of each month, with evening walks in summer and illustrated talks in winter. Additional whole day events are organised periodically.'
