'Our Group's aim is to collect the history of Chaddesden and its surrounding area for the benefit of future generations as well as for today's historians ... We hold monthly meetings ... With a guest speaker, refreshments and lively company available a good time is assured.'

'The Society holds three types of meetings each month and you don't have to be a member to attend any of them, although of course we encourage people to join: * Our Main Meetings usually involve a popular level talk by an outside speaker, typically from a university, on some aspect of astronomy or space science; * Between September and June we hold monthly Introduction to Astronomy Meetings; * Weather permitting we hold Monthly Observing Sessions on the Saturday following the Saturday immediately after our Main Meetings.'
