on . Hits: 2274

Following this afternoon's Government announcement regarding the Covid-19 Coronavirus pandemic advising everyone to avoid unnecessary social contact, Sherwood Observatory will be closed until further notice.


Our observatory may be closed for personel visits but we do offer an online ZOOM service for all uniformed associations and adult associations like U3A . Please contact our visits address for further information . 


All members meetings, group visits and our astronomy course are cancelled. The relevant coordinators will be contacting course attendees and groups yet to visit to offer refunds or to rearrange for a future date. The committee are investigating the possibility of organising member presentations via the internet and will be in touch with members via email in due course.

We trust that all our visitors and members will understand the need for such action and wish you all the best in these trying times. Be safe and be well.
