AGM & Members Images
Our next meeting is our AGM and is for SWHAS members only.
It is a really important event for you to attend as we were not able to hold one last year.
It’s your chance, as a member of the SWHAS, to have your say on how the society is run, elect the committee members and make suggestions as to how to improve the way things are done.
The meeting will also include a news item of interest, a tour of the upcoming night sky and showcase our Members Images.
