“Many thanks for a superb five days of Astro at Ventnor! The course was beyond all expectations (and my expectations were high based on Stokey’s excellent reputation far and wide) And it leaves me with a strong feeling that Astro taught right has a strong potential for a broader following. The local area was most enjoyable and a return to this part of the Isle of Wight for some country walking is definitely part of our family’s future plans now. Thanks for making me feel so welcome in Ventnor” Google.

The accommodation was excellent and the breakfasts great – I felt welcome.Thanks for the great teaching on the ‘ways of Astro’- it’s clear that a great deal of time and devotion has gone into your courses and I can’t wait to get using the sextant” BA Captain.
