Under 18s can now join FREE!
In his will, our late, former President Steve Adams bequeathed the sum of £300 pounds to the Society with express purpose of paying the annual subscriptions of junior members (currently £6 for a year). The society has also contributed an equal amount, and set up the Steve Adams Bursary, starting at £600. Steve was always extremely keen to encourage an interest in astronomy and spaceflight in the young, and the fund we have established will make it cheaper for young people or families to join us.
How it works
The Bursary will pay the renewal costs of existing junior members and the subscriptions of new junior members. A junior member is anyone who joins or renews their subscription before their 18th birthday. This scheme comes into operation on January 1st 2016 and will continue until such time as the fund is fully used up.
Junior members under the age of sixteen must be accompanied by an adult at our society meetings (this does not apply to our free public observing events).
