Ashford Astronomical Society is a fun and welcoming group
aiming to make astronomy accessible and enjoyable for all.
Have you ever looked up at the night sky and thought 'Wow!', but wished
you knew a bit more about it? Have you ever bought or been given a

a 'top notch' scientist, or even to buy huge quantities of expensive

What else do you need? A welcoming and friendly Astronomy Society to
guide you along of course!
Ashford Astronomical Society meets on the last Friday of every month
(except bank holidays), at 7.30pm at the Woodchurch Memorial Hall, Front
Road, Woodchurch, TN26 3QB.
