Observatory working party

On Sunday 4th September a few members from the society got together for a working party at the observatory.

The hazel hedge, which had grown mad over the summer and was obstructing views from the 'scope was cut right back with chain saws, hedge trimmers and loppers. The weeds, nettles and overgrown grass was trimmed back. The gutters on the observatory were cleaned out and the algae removed from the dome.

A big thank you to Pat C, Chris T, Mark C, Paul S, Jackie H and Don and Chrissie S for turning out on a Sunday to help and providing tools and to Mark C for the welcomed drinks at the pub afterwards!

An excellent morning / afternoons work.
