Johanna Korndorfer, our Dark Skies Project Officer is taking the message out to Parish Councils, Women's Institutes and community groups about importance of safeguarding our dark skies. 

Johanna will deliver a talk providing information on why dark skies are important and a demonstration about ways outdoor lighting, with a few simple adjustments, can protect our astronomical heritage, treat nocturnal wildlife better and safeguard our own health and well-being.
