The Society aims to hold annual day schools, either self-promoted or occasionally in association with other organisations.'

Member of the British Association of Numismatic Societies Grouping

'Dedicated to providing advice, support and encouragement to those people, in and around the South Cheshire Crewe & Nantwich area who have an interest in astronomy and related sciences and technology. There are no limits associated with age or experience - the only pre-requisite is an enthusiasm for the subject! We are a community none profit organisation run entirely by unpaid member/enthusiast volunteers ... Our regular scheduled meetings take place from September to May of the suceeding year.'

'The Society was founded in 1964, its aim being “to promote and foster the study of ornithology by observation, research and record-keeping in order to add to the existing knowledge of this science both in S.E. Cheshire and in the world at large”. A rather grand aim but one that we have tried to adhere to ever since ... Indoor meetings are held on the second Friday of each month from September to April, starting at 7.30pm. Talks with slides, video and digital media are given by a variety of quality speakers on a wide range of subjects.'
