Following a committee discussion over the weekend, from hearing from other astronomical societies and the latest advice from the government, we have decided to cancel the March and April meetings at Ayton to minimise any risk of illness.
was expecting a lower than normal attendance if we did go ahead with the
current advice on social distancing and as both March and April’s
speakers were travelling to speak to us, it also didn’t seem fair to
have them potentially presenting to an empty room.
We will reschedule Jurgen Schmoll and Neil Haggath’s talks into the next season’s calendar.
If further cancellations of May and beyond meetings are required we
will post here closer to the time, currently StarFest is not set to be
