Science enables us to understand much more about the world about us and our group has explored issues as diverse as "energy" and "elements"

Pre the Coronavirus restrictions we met at the St Matthews Parish Centre, The Drive, Northampton on the first Wednesday in the month at 10.00am and need more recruits if you are interested in joining us?

Meetings now take place at the same time using Zoom
