1st Meeting of the Year !

Tuesday, 22nd January will be the first Camera Club Meeting for 2020. As always, starting at 7pm , usual Venue.

The results and comments from the images submitted in November already, will be announced.

I’ve checked the Website and not many members have submitted images for the FEBRUARY Competition. It closes on Wednesday, 22nd January @ 6PM. Now is the time to shake off the holiday malaise and grab the year by the throat.

See you next Tuesday !

Keep on snapping and submitting!

Kind regards,

Lindie
