July 2020 News

Since lockdown at the end of March, the club has managed to tick over involving it’s membership.

The joint Chair, Lewis Thompson and Mike Jenner organized a series of six internal competitions, the first four of which the images entered had to be taken within the confines of the photographer’s property. The last two, with restrictions to travel being relaxed slightly, were a little more open.

The response to the competitions has been good and members of the club could vote for the best ( in their opinion ) top five places.

However……! with a chink of light at the far end of the tunnel, and it is a long one , the committee has organized a half day (3 hour ) session/visit which takes place on July 22nd. With the location being Garstang.  This will be the first of three such visits over the summer period, the final two have yet to be decided upon. Images taken on these three visits will form the basis of the EVENTS CUP 2020.  Any member wishing to take part in this, should inform the club’s chair on


We will meet on Booth’s car park at 2.00pm and the time allowed for the event is 2.00-5.00pm. The “theme” is anything  photographable in Garstang.

As with many other voluntary organisations  we aim to follow the relevant Health and Safety Recommendations and these can be found on our website given below.

We do seem to be arriving, not at Platform 1, but at a version of the  “new normal” whatever that may be and so we wish you all good shooting and that you all keep safe as the chains are slackened.
