Our Syllabus continues to reflect the wishes of our members by being a mix of informative lectures, internal competitions, and external competitions with other local camera clubs, all with the aim of developing photographic skills while having fun.

We hold an Open Night on the first Thursday of most months where we hope these evenings will be a great opportunity for members to learn and develop new skills shown to them by our more experienced members. The topics are selected from ideas put forward by our members.

Our monthly Open Competitions are held on the third Thursday of each month, and are for the fun and enjoyment of our members, and all members are welcome to submit images. Judges from other local clubs give their constructive comments from which we can all learn and improve.

Our Themed Competitions are held on different nights to the Open Competition, so please check the syllabus for the dates and topics.

We also arrange Days Out for our members to a wide variety of locations during the year. Our more experienced members pass on help and advice to members who are new to photography, and we hold a competition at the end of the year for prints and projected images taken on these days out.

All our meetings are conducted in a very friendly atmosphere, and both visitors and potential new members are always welcome. 

Meetings are on Thursdays. All meetings will start at 7.30pm prompt.

 

After discussions with members of our Club Council and in the light of government information regarding the Covid-19 outbreak, it is with great sadness that we confirm that the Club is closed until further notice.
