December 2021 News

A warm welcome to everyone and can we wish you  A Happy (and better ) New Year.  Where has the time gone ?  Reading this, we will hopefully have had all our Christmas Festivities which we were allowed having written this on Dec. 5th. I hope we all got what we deserved !

In December, we began with our competition which was Environment. The judge was Daryl Giles who gave us a good insight as to why the prints and images on display just failed to get into the prize section. We can learn from these critiques to benefit our future entries. On Dec. 8th. we were treated to Lake District Moods by Carmen Norman. ( you can view the competition results by logging on to our website)

The Christmas Social was held on Dec. 14th which took the form of a meal along with the usual quiz, Our thanks to all who were involved in the organizing, well done, it is always very much appreciated.

I give details of our programme for January.   Jan 5th is  Photographing the North West by  Lee Metcalfe,    Jan 12th  Our third competition  Creatures of the World  judged by  Harry Emmett.  Jan 19th  the Junction 36 Battle  and workshop 7 photographs in 7 days.   I can also give advanced notice of the Humanity competition on Feb.2cnd.  which will be judged by Jim Cunningham.

I am hopeful that with the invasion of this new strain of the virus, we will still be able to continue with what has been an excellent start of our ‘21/’22 programme, unfortunately, I failed to find a crystal ball in my stocking !
