Yes Christmas is almost upon us and here’s hoping you all have a wonderful family Christmas and New Year Just a reminder;

  1. After preparing your images as per the rules already sent out you need to pay your 50p/image to our treasurer Chris

  2. You then need to send them to ME at by 15th January 2022

I will then do all the collation of the images, compile a spreadsheet of titles etc and send them to Bill Hall via WeTransfer before the official hand-in date of 22nd January.

Any problem give me a call on 07788590141


  1. 6th January is the next meeting in our new venue and as it is a “practical” members need to bring their CAMERAS and INSTRUCTION MANUAL so we can all get to grips with the various buttons and switches !!

  2. The week after on 13th January, is Mandy’s “Lucky Dip 2” hand-in for all of those “marbelous” selections you made (see what I did there- haha).

  2. To opt in to the visitors favourite print image lottery and the sale of prints. Prints will be offered for sale at a standard price of £35. Any postage fees required would be an extra cost.
