AGM 2021

Dear CDAS Members

The COVID Pandemic has obviously altered our way of life for the past eleven months and will continue to do so for some time to come. As far as CDAS is concerned we have been able to hold Zoom Meetings to maintain our social enthusiasm for Astronomy and to conduct regular committee meetings.

We now have to take our use of Zoom one step further.

Our AGM, on 10th March 2021 at 7.30pm, will be conducted via Zoom. If you would like to attend please contact Sue Parr who will ensure that your name is added to the Invitation List. Anyone can use Zoom but it usually works better if the free Zoom application is downloaded first.

At the AGM our Committee and Charity Commission Trustees are elected. If you are interested in being part of the Committee or a Trustee please contact Sue Parr. Those nominated will be voted on and duly elected on the night.

As we come through this pandemic the role of the committee will be even more essential so new members will be especially welcome.

Also the Minutes of the 2020 AGM will be available nearer the date and if you would like to read them, please make Sue aware, so she can send them to you.

We look forward to seeing at the AGM on 10th March 2021 at 7.30pm.

Our very best wishes for 2021

Mike Brightmore



For the foreseeable future all Lecture and Informal meetings for society members will be conducted via Zoom. For login details please contact the secretary Sue Parr.

Please see Beginners' page of website for details of the online beginners course.


It isn’t possible to predict when our meetings will resume but we will let everyone know when we are able to use the observatory again. Here’s wishing all our members good health.
