As there has been no realistic prospect of arranging anything up to now and for the immediate future, it seems unfair to keep the recurring subscriptions live. I have therefore cancelled all recurring subscriptions.

However, anyone who was a subscribing member as of yesterday will continue as such for the next 12 months, regardless of how long they had left.

It seems the system sent everyone an email to say that they have been cancelled, which is true, but only in as much as they won’t get an automatic charge anymore. It was my intention to send everyone an email but I can’t do that as a block now that I hit the cancel button. I should have done it first, and I apologise for not doing so.

I have a host of events ready to go as soon as it’s possible to set dates. A number of exclusive visits to various places not normally accessible, some workshops for night photography and image processing a series of nights entitled introduction to Astronomy and of course the ever popular Farne Island excursions to name but a few. I also have a number of walks planned for the autumn with various themes for each of them.

So I would ask everyone to please bear with me for now until we get the go-ahead to resume activities.
