Hertford Astronomy Group

HAG is coming Home!

Having gradually drifted away from its origins due to its ever expanding membership the Hertford Astronomy Group  is coming back to Hertford - well almost.

Having outgrown a number of premises over the years we are again in the position that we need larger accommodation and we have found it at Haileybury School in Hertford Heath.  The school have made the Attlee Room available for us to hold our meetings in for the forthcoming year.  This is in the building with the large dome on the top so is easy to find.  Spacious accommodation, easy parking and good observation opportunities will make this an ideal venue for our meetings.

We look forward to seeing you there!
