Newsletter NL182 – Saturday 9th December 2023

Season 2023-2024 - Newsletter No. 182 Editor: Derek Godridge

PCC News:

  • Firstly I want to say a huge THANK YOU for all your birthday wishes sent to me via social media and also the rather super birthday cake.

  • Now for an apology for the lateness of this Newsletter – all due to me doing a photoshoot yesterday and then spending most of the day post processing! The results will be revealed soon.

  • Well another great talk from Bill Hall last Thursday with his presentation over the last few years of arriving in Cornwall and a few prime trips around the world including South Africa. He certainly showed us a “pot-pourri” of photos both pictorial and personal so a lot of varied interest. Many thanks to Bill again and if you are going to our three-way Inter-Club Battle on Monday at Carnon Downs we’ll be seeing him him on Monday!
