Preparations are underway to make a cabinet for the telescope for its new home at the Yacht and Tennis Club. Telescope keys have been copied and will be distributed to the Chair, Treasurer and Secretaries.

Dr Glynn Marsh, working for BFNL, Preston, UK visited Lou Cox's Observatory. He is an renowned comet watcher.
