Firstly on behalf of our club and me personally, may I thank everyone for their support this year and here’s wishing you a Very Happy Christmas and a Happy New Year !!

  • Great fun with great friends last night and a Fun Quiz organized by our Pressie Geoff James. Thanks also to Julie for bringing her wonderful hand-made felt toys and Mark for giving members the opportunity to buy some surplus camera gear. Finally thanks to you all for donating the food and raffle prizes, it all made the evening go off so well.
