Stockport Observatory Spared by Lower North Fires

Relayed from Joe Grida, President of our sister organization ASSA in South Australia:
Hello all,

I’m pleased to report that our observatory at Stockport was spared by today’s fire only by metres. Our neighbour to the south, Pat Savage, reports that the observatory is fine. There are burn marks in his backyard. There was a building fire in the adjacent property to the west, but details of actual damage are at present sketchy.

David Bennett, our Vice-President, plans to visit the site tomorrow morning and will report back.
