NOTICE:

I’m sorry to say that due to the latest Government recommendations of avoiding all unnecessary social contact we can no longer gather for meetings as usual.

 We will be able to bring future meetings to SIGMA and affiliated members online via Zoom Webinars. This will continue  until restrictions are lifted. 

If you would like to become a member to enable you to join the online meeting please contact Mick at

Peter Sherman (Chairman)

Due to an amazing effort by the committee and other members we had our first successful online monthly meeting on Friday 3rd April. We’re working on making sure everyone is able to take part and will be bringing future meetings to SIGMA and affiliated members online too! We plan to continue to hold our meetings like this until we are allowed to gather as normal once again.

If you are not already a SIGMA member and would like to become one to enable you to join our online meetings please contact Mick at:
membership@sigma-astro.co.uk

Current membership costs £24 per year, payable each January, the cost for the remainder of 2020 is now £4
