      Hi, 
      my names Matt and I live in Sawmills. I don't drive but would like to join an astronomy group to learn more.
      i just wondered if I can join your group and what I would need to do?
      Where do you meet for example and when?
      Ive been observing for 2 years now but am still very much a newbie.
