We currently accept payment by cash or cheque (made payable to 'The Athenaeum Astromomy Association').

Not sure?

If you're not sure whether you want to commit to a year's membership, you are welcome to come along to your first two meetings at no cost while you make up your mind.

   In accordance with our Child Protection Policy, which adopts the FAS Child Protection Guidelines, any under-16s attending AAA meetings or events must be accompanied by an adult member. 16-18 year-olds wishing to attend meetings unaccompanied, must provide a permission statement signed by their parent or guardian.

   A couple must be resident at the same address.

   A 'Friend' of the AAA is someone who is interested in supporting the Association's observatory Restoration Project, but is not involved in practical astronomy with the group. Friends are, however, entitled to attend two astronomy meetings per year at no additional charge. Friends' fees will be used to support the Restoration Project, unless you indicate on the membership form that you are happy for it to be allocated at the discretion of the AAA committee.
