The Beginners Section of the Newbury Astronomical Society provides an entry level introduction to astronomy.  Monthly observing meetings are held at St Mary's Church Hall, Greenham, Berkshire, England from September through to June the following year.  At these meetings members of the Newbury Astronomical Society are available to provide advice and give simple talks on a wide range of astronomically related topics.

There are no age limits but children under the age of 16 must be accompanied by an adult. Everyone of any age is invited to come along to join in the meetings and use the society telescopes. For further details of the Beginners meetings can be found by clicking HERE.
