  We are not a Club and the usual way to get involved is via one of our courses normally "Astronomy for Interest". Experienced folk can just provide name, address, phone and mobile numbers and email. Then come along and get involved!

Clubs in your area can be found on the Federation of Astronomical Societies web site.
