Star parties at Jodrell
started them, and helped the Visitor Centre get them up and running as a reasonably regular event, great public outreach for the Observatory and a huge success!

Astronomy Go For It! for Guides
with the Institute of Physics, project received a PPARC grant. On the team which wrote and tested the package. Used it as the theme for a weekend camp with my Guides.

Schools project on meteor showers
an idea from the Centre for Science Education to link schools and scientists in the UK and Australia, subject to an EPSRC grant which was unsuccessful. Started the project anyway, as a local outreach project for the Lovell's 50th.
