The SAS new “All-Access” Mount is now operational, which has been specically designed for wheelchair users/members that the SAS has designed and commisioned.
And on the 20th November 2015, from 6 pm we will be Honoured with the presence of Baroness Tanni Grey-Thompson who will do the official opening ceremony.
The SAS would like to thank Harry Herron and Dave Beedham who had the initial idea and took it all the way to CAD drawings.
The company who manufactured the mount and donated it to the club free of charge. They dont want publicity, so we are honouring their request. Many Thanks.
The Newcastle Building Society who gave us a grant of £500 that helped us purchase the telescope. Paul Meade made such a good application to them they granted us the funds.
Again Harry and Dave who got the mount set up.
Finally a big thanks to Dave Ettie who has put in a lot of work behind the scenes and has been the person that has persuaded the Baroness to commission the mount. Thank you.
And anyone else that has helped in this exciting development for the club.
