Neil Morrison has shared with us some photos of a visit to Oriel High School. Later Neil returned to Oriel to gift a some eyepieces and two books written by Strom Dunlop (one on astronomy and one on he weather) to teachers visiting from Loyola School ( Jamshedpur) . Both books were autographed by the author,
Oriel have a connection to Loyola and have been on at least two visits there arranged through the British Council. The Loyola School has an Astronomy Club which has been in difficulties recently as the Club is run by a Jesuit priest who is 92 years of age and wheel chair bound. Eye pieces had gone missing from their 4 inch reflector. Also, their antique refractor ( Circa 1900) now has two cracks in its objective lens. Neil has been giving been advising on the way forward .
