It's now just two days before we have a stall at the 'Space Day at the Hive' event on Saturday.  Chris Livingstone is ill at present (get well soon Chris), so we're going to need even more help setting up and manning our stand.

We're planning to start setting up just at around 9:00 am,so all help will be very gratefully received.  This is our best opportunity of the year to promote Astronomy and the society to a wider public.

We've just uploaded a folder of info about the event into a folder in the Members' only 'Files' section of the newsgroup.  This includes details of loading and unloading access and car parking.
