ALL SOCIETY GATHERINGS AT WETLANDS CENTRE SUSPENDED UNTIL FURTHER NOTICE due to COVID-19
A committee meeting was held tonight 18th March and we took the decision to suspend, until further notice.
All Thursday and Sunday gatherings at the Washington wetlands centre.
We didn’t come to the decision lightly but the clear statement from the government and medical advisers is that all non essential gatherings are to stop.
A lot of our members who keep the society going by opening and closing and running the nights are in the high risk group and it will be irresponsible for us to put people at risk.
To do nothing at this time risks the reputation of our society.
We will still keep going in the virtual world so please continue to post your fantastic pictures and astronomy related articles on here. There may be possibilities of small outdoor only stargazing sessions in future so stay on the lookout.
I will post regular updates and news.
Take care and stay safe.
To to be clear.
