JAC & GILL Club
JAC & GILL Club First Meeting West Bay Cafe Sat 11 04 2014.

Following the runaway success of the main Thanet Astronomy Group, we now have many families with children that are also very interested in astronomy.

Therefore, we have set up the JAC & Gill club for our younger (5 to 17 years) enthusiasts.

The JAC & Gill Club meet every Saturday 3:00pm to 4:00pm at the West Bay Cafe during the Free adults meeting.
