Formed in 1994, the Havering Astronomical Society is based in Cranham, Essex and contains about 40 members. HAS was formed by members of an astronomy evening class (taught by Konrad Malin-Smith of the Croydon Astronomical Society). When the course finished it was decided to create a new astronomical society to allow the members to continue meetings on a regular basis.
Meetings are on the third Wednesday of each month at Cranham Community Centre, Marlborough Gardens, Cranham, Essex. 7.30 pm.
This year is our 21st anniversary. To mark the occasion, long-time member Liz Watson baked a spectacular birthday cake and Konrad Malin-Smith, founder of the society and honorary member, gave a talk and helped himself to a slice or two!
