My wife and I are going to London (coming to London) from April 24th to May 6th. We will be on vacation (holiday). We have never been to a star party and Mary said she would like to go to one. We had tickets to London three years ago, but my wife, Mary, ended up in the hospital for six and a half months. It is time for Mary and Nurse Richard to continue where we left off. If there is, by chance, anything happening in this part of the UK during this time would you please let me know.

That's a real shame Richard as you will just miss one of the best star parties at Kelling Heath which takes place roughly 17 - 20th April to tie in with new Moon. This takes place in Norfolk, so maybe too far for you anyway. Some people like to stay on after the event, but Astronomy rules don't tend to apply then, so if Joe public come in with bright lights we can't tell them to switch off, although we did manage to once by asking nicely.

That's a shame RIchard.
I'm nowhere near London but it would have been nice to meet you, you look like such a nice chap :)
Have a great time both of you.

We have a friend that we haven't had a chance to get in touch with in three years who lives near Halifax. If we go there some day I'll look you up. We have always corresponded by letter so it takes an effort.

Richard is coming to Yorkshire on Sunday 3rd. If anyone lives near, or can travel to Huddersfield. My back garden is open to all. If the weathers kind I'll have my few scopes set up. Can get the planets during the day and early evening. If you wish to bring a scope your welcome to do so. I can run a few extensions outside, but you might want to bring an extension yourself. Also my garden gets very wet if there has been rain so boots might be in order. We have underground rivlets that run off the hills. All are welcome, come and meet Richard.
PM me for details.

Pat it might be an idea to remove you address from this post and get members to pm you for details. Any one can read it and make use of it for their own not necessarily legal minds.

I've removed the ado. Although if anyone had bad intentions, they'd probably improve my credit rating :rofl:
