  • Organise regular meetings with invited guest speakers and reports of members’ practical work
  • Provide equipment that members may use to develop their interest in astronomy
  • Provide a focal point for astronomical activity in Worthing and the surrounding area
  • Provide a channel of communication with other local, regional and national astronomical societies
