Hi Rob, website doesn't match at the moment. I'll have a word with our techy if he doesn't see this anyway. We have recently temporary lost our usual venue, which is the Hayloft at the Erewash museum where we would meet on the second Tuesday of the month, due to building work. So we are using the community room at Ilkeston fire station which is only available on Thursdays. Unfortunately we are limited to 2hrs.

Everyone is welcome along, refreshments are £2 for non members. The fire station is on Derby Road opposite the bowling alley, please use rear entrance for community room. If no one around press the buzzer which is linked in to the room, parking is very limited at the fire station but there is a car park on oakwell drive which is only a few yards away.

Big thank you to Paul Money for a very interesting, well received talk bring us right up to date with photos from the New Horizons mission.

That object has lots of secrets to give up yet and the latest pics are just in stunning detail.

Well worth booking this talk if you get the chance.

Andy, so sorry i didn't make it tonight. Spent the evening in hospital instead  :facepalm:


 


I had a bad fall earlier, dislocating 2 toes and severely bruising both my feet.


I'll be on crutches for a few days.


 


Gutted to miss out on a Paul Money talk, but i'm sure you all had a great evening.


He's one of the best isn't he ?


 


Hopefully get along some other time  :)
