Eaton Manor Dark Skies

On  Saturday 6th July 2019 the Shropshire Astronomical Society are organising an Eaton Manor Dark Skies event. The event starts at 3pm and there is an entry fee of £2.

Eaton Manor Dark Skies will have Space related activities including Meteor, Solar and Stellar observing. There will be a Telescope clinic, so don’t forget to bring along your telescope, Planetarium tours of the night sky and presentations and talks.

Eaton Manor has some of the Darkest Skies in South Shropshire so is perfect for this event. It is at Eaton under Heywood along the northern edge Wenlock Edge not far from Church Stretton.

This Eaton Manor Dark Skies event is open to all who have enquiring minds, young and older. There are facilities for the disabled.

New for your comfort

I try to keep on top of things in Folly View.

Knocks to paint work are done as we go along.

If things break they get replaced.

I have just replaced the sofa cushions that you sit on. The old ones were getting a bit flat, and difficult to plump up. We hope you like the new comfortable cushions.

The double bed has a new mattress, recommended by Which (I didn’t know that when it was ordered). I have also got some new duvet covers for the double bed, still with the blue theme.

There is a new mini HiFi, which has Bluetooth compatibility, DAB radio, takes cds, and all other devices that have music on.

There is a new kettle and toaster.

I have replaced the outside table and chairs. We had done as many repairs as we could on the old ones.

My loosing battle is the fencing and trellis, I should never have painted it a colour.
