PCC News of the Week:

Well what a great day for a steam railway journey! Yes our Helston Railway Trip was a really good way to get out and about together and enjoy the lovely Autumn weather we are having. It was a nice surprise to find that we could “go around again” and the snacks and cream teas in the buffet car proved particularly popular! Thanks for supporting the trip.


  1. We had a real treat last night with our judge for the evening Bruce Hobbs handing out some excellent and incisive critique comments on our prints and digital images.

  2. Karen is planning our trip to the Wheal Martyn China Clay museum for the first week in November as per her recent email so please respond if you want to go.

  3. Next week we have our first Critique evening so please bring up to 4 images on a Pen Drive/Stick with you. This is always a good opportunity to get some feedback from fellow members on images you are not quite sure of.
