June 2022 News

We are now well into our summer “recess” although not completely shut down ! Members having full access to our Summer Events Cup outings , two of which have already taken place, one to Skippool Creek and a visit through Brock Bottoms. To come on July 17th is a day out to Holker Hall.

In May, we held a very successful Annual Presentation Evening to end off a successful ’21-’22 season thanks to our Chairmen, the Committee and all members for their input. The presentations were made by the outgoing Mayor of Garstang,  Councillor Alec Allan who told us that this was his last official duty……what a way to end his year !  It was an excellent evening with a superb buffet along with a well put together quiz. The award of Photographer of the Year 2021-2022, went to John Moxham, taking with him quite an amount of silverware. More power to his elbow, especially when he is using the metal polish. Congratulations John.

As photographers, living in this area gives us many opportunities to use our “craft skills”. We have the surrounding countryside and within a good hour or so, can be in the Lakes or the Yorkshire dales. Events come thick and fast with local Church/Children’s Festivals, Agricultural Shows in Gt. Eccleston and Garstang,  Steam Rallies and Cycle Racing…………the list goes on.

Enjoy the summer and,  good shooting.
