February 2021 News

Hello to all and welcome to our Club’s New Year. We thought it would be greeted with a degree of optimism and so it might. But we still have a disturbing few months ahead of us before we arrive at a new normal.  Right ….that’s the bile out of the way.

We are already into our new year’s programme having had our CREATURES OF THE WORLD judged and a presentation of A-Z Back to Basics by Dave Bibby. The programme for the rest of Feb. is given below :-

February  3rd.  Judging of the club competition  HUMANITY.

     ..         10TH. We welcome  Roger Geldard on  JAPAN’S  WINTER WILDLIFE.

     ..         17TH. Alison Jenkins presents  OUR PHOTOGRAPHY — WORK AND HOBBY.

March 3rd. Starts with our club competition  ANYTHING GOES.

All zoom meetings start at 7.30  Anyone wishing to join in by membership , please contact us through the website given at the bottom.

Since, as I write this, we are under the instructions of stay at home , photographic opportunities are diminished unless we happen to live in a rural location where we can carry our camera as we take advantage of our daily exercise. The white tops of the Lakeland hills are in golfing parlance “out of bounds”.  The attendance at our zoom meetings still impresses me and our presenters come from a much wider radius than before, not having to travel many hours for a two hours session. That is one silver lining I can think of………..not many others !

We wish everyone a Happy and Healthy New Year and look forward to normal ( ish) times in the future.
