Local Society: Yeovil

'Formed in 2002 with around 24 members. The Society now has a membership of over 50 ... Our meetings are open to all. No previous experience or knowledge of astronomy is required. If you are generally interested in "what’s up there", would like to learn how to image the night sky or would like to know where to start in astronomy, you will be particularly welcome. Of course, experienced astronomers are welcome too!'

'The United Kingdom currently boasts the largest national aerospace industry in Europe and the second largest in the World. The Royal Aeronautical Society has a large number of branches serving all the major hubs of aerospace activity throughout the UK, represented by a diverse range of members from technical, military, and enthusiast backgrounds.'

'We provide training, promote best practice and offer advice, support and education to beekeepers and the public. Over the years our members have made – and continue to make - an impressive contribution to British beekeeping at both national and county level ... The Somerset Beekeepers Association is divided into twelve divisions, each corresponding to a different area of the county. Members can join any division, and also be members of more than one division. Members also don't have to live in Somerset, for example some members are from neighbouring counties such as Dorset or Devon ... The SBKA and each division organise lectures, usually in the "off-season" (i.e. autumn and winter, and into early spring) for beekeeping. Most divisional lectures are open to members of other divisions, and if in doubt just ask! Lectures are a great way to learn more about beekeeping and bees, and to help get you ready and excited for the next season.'
