Hertford Astronomy Group

New Venue for meetings

Fairway Suite

Fairway Tavern

Panshanger Golf Complex

Old Herns Lane

Welwyn Garden City


Unfortunately, our plans to move to Haileybury have hit a stumbling block that we do not seem to be able to climb over so our next meeting will be at the Fairway Suite on the Panshanger Golf Complex.

There is plenty of parking space and a sizeable room for our meeting.

Doors will open at 7:30 (no earlier) for the meeting which is due to start at 8:00.

If the evening is clear then you will be able to bring your telescopes and binoculars along to do some observing in the private garden attached to the room.

Drinks will be available from the bar before and after the meeting.

We look forward to seeing you there!
