ASH Group

Given the introduction of our Observing Evenings has proved very popular, we have decided to expand them, so expect more per year.

However this all depends on weather conditions, so arrangements are likely to be made close to any particular date, or could change even on the day. Consequently having your email and/or mobile phone number is getting more vital as you can be notified up to the minute. So - as we have asked before - anyone who hasn't already done so, (and are willing to do so), please send this and your mobile phone number to: observing@ashastro.co.uk
(This goes to Chairman: Jim Webb; Membership Secretary: Alister Innes and Treasurer: Kyri Voskou)

This means they can text if necessary. (Currently working on Tweeting...!)

Up-to-date anouncements will also be made on the re-booted Facebook page

Any specific queries regarding observing evenings - email: observing@ashastro.co.uk

 

The Location

Old Elizabethans Memorial Playing Fields, Gypsy Corner, Mays Lane Barnet, EN5 2AG
(Barnet Gate Lane end)

There is plently of parking on site , but unfortunately there is no direct public transport. The nearest is about 1 mile. The closest underground is High Barnet - see map below.

Those without their own transport could contact one of the Committee - see CONTACT page

In case of inclement weather, the fall-back was The Old Red Lion Pub, at the junction of Mays Lane with the A1000. However that has closed and we are currently looking for a new location. More when we have found one!
