  • Solar Observation at the Hampstead Observatory & Lunch

    October 2, 2019
    Have you ever wondered what a solar observation looked like through a telescope? Have you always had an interest in astronomy?
    Then this is the event for you!
    You can view interesting objects through the fine 6-inch Cooke refractor which was presented to the Society by George Avenell in 1923. Members of the section are always on hand to show visitors such sights as Saturn’s rings, Jupiter’s cloud belts, the craters and mountains on the Moon and some of the brighter ‘deep sky’ objects – star clusters and one or two nebulae and galaxies. On Sunday mornings they can safely project an image of the Sun to reveal sunspots and faculae. They are open free of charge however donations are always welcome.
    Lunch will be had at the Duke of Hamilton afterwards at 1pm.

  • Friday Night Dumplings

    April 14, 2016
    DUMPLINGS!!! Cousin to the well-known Chinese Dim Sum, but still as yummy!!

    Tonight, you’ll be taken to Dumpling’s Legend in the heart of Chinatown where you’ll get the chance to taste these Asian delicacies.

    At Dumplings’ Legend you can work up an appetite watching the team of chefs in the open-plan kitchen. Why not try the siu long bao: these delicate dumplings are filled with chicken, spicy pork, shrimp or vegetable soup, and are best eaten while hot, with a splash of vinegar.

    The small portions make them perfect for sharing, and who better to share them with than with your fellow Bobbers? 🙂
