Othery Street Fair

On the 17th June Somerset Levels Stargazers had a stand at the Othery Street Fair.

We had a pick a star game winning a prize each time, a huge big thanks to all who gave donations to the table including Hestercombe Gardens and Wookey Hole Caves who donated free tickets , we also had a solar telescope set up which had a lot of interest.

A good day out despite the heat with lots to see and do and plenty of much needed refreshments.
