Stargazing in Yetminster


Local children were invited to a stargazing event at St Andrew’s Primary in Yetminster in February, with the opportunity to try out large professional telescopes as well as take part in fun space-related activities!
The children learnt about different constellations and how to use star maps, while enjoying hot chocolate and roasting marshmallows in the firepit.
The event raised nearly £600 for the school. Teacher Graham Simpson said ‘The stargazing was a lovely event, enjoyed not only by the pupils and parents of St Andrew’s Primary School, but the whole community. The school field was beautifully illuminated, and it was a magical evening – even if the stars were playing hide and seek! Our thanks go to our hard-working PTFA and the staff at Lower Covey Nursery for organising it’.
