“I enjoy bringing the children to the astronomy centre as it provides them with a unique experience that they can not get from work in the classroom. The children find the resources stimulating and it motivates them to learn more about astronomy as all questions are welcomed and answered. It is a visit they remember for many years!”
Nichola Bonsor KS2 teacher – St John’s Blackpool

“Never, in all my connections with the school since 1949, have I seen such an impressive show. Everyone was astounded by Nick’s enthusiasm and knowledge of his subject. This was a PRO display PAR EXCELLENCE.”

“On behalf of the Aspired Futures team and young people, we would like to say a big thank you to Rossall school and Nick for a fantastic Astronomy session on Saturday 10th December 2016. We had a group of 27 children/young people and 9 staff/volunteers who attended, the group comprised of some  children who had previously attended and were asking to return, and some new children/young people.
Once again Nick was so enthusiastic and full of immense knowledge to share with our young people about the solar system, they were so excited having learnt so much information.”
