Jodrell Bank Trip

Jodrell Bank

Free Spring Outing to Jodrell Bank Discovery Centre 
 
On Saturday April 29th we will visit Jodrell Bank Macclesfield, SATNAV SK11 9DW to learn about astronomy and to see the Lovell Telescope www.jodrellbank.net. 
 
Thanks to Joe for researching and planning this outing. 
 
We will explore the Space Pavilion where you can learn about the stars, the universe and the Black Hole and also the Planet Pavilion where you can learn about the solar system. There are large gardens with good views of the telescope and a cafe. 
 
The trip will be free (paid for by Autonomy) for members and carers. We have a 17 seater minibus and aim to arrive at Jodrell Bank by 11am. We will pick up members in Shrewsbury 
at the Abbey Foregate car park (SY2 6AH) (opposite the Abbey) at 8.45am. (Cost £2.70 to park all day) and at Wellington Leisure Centre (TF1 1LX) at about 9.15am (free parking in Long Stay car parks). We will leave by 5.00pm and aim to be in Wellington by about 6.45pm and in Shrewsbury by about 7.30pm. 
 
You must book a minibus place for this outing. Contact Sara or Eric by phone: 01743 821363; text: 07895142801; message Sara Heath or Autonomy on Facebook; email using the contact form or tell Sara or Eric when you see us at one of our social events. 
 
To avoid disappointment to other members, please only book a place if you will actually go on the trip - and please tell us well in advance if you can't come so we can give your place to someone else.
