The History and Constitution of the Society

wpeA.jpg (4988 bytes)The society was formed in January 1998 following a year of preparatory work by a number of the
founder members. The history goes back to 1997 when Phil Alner, our past chairman, 'discovered' the
Society
telescope (see
OUR 'SCOPE). A core group of members including Phil Alner, Gordon Lloyd,
Geoff Rowlands and Paul Curtis worked to bring this back into working condition and gain permission
for its use from our employer. The society now has permission to use, care and maintain this excellent
observatory, housing a 6" Carl Zeiss Coudé refractor in excellent condition.

The society has a formal constitution and a membership of 40+. The current committee are listed below:-
