club programme... season 2015 - 2016

This version of the forthcoming season's Friday Evening Programme is issued on 11th August 2014. There may be minor amendments.

We also continue to meet on Wednesday evenings throughout the year.  This is also supplemented by monthly outings on the first Saturday of the month during May, June, July and August.  We have also introduced ad-hoc and other outings during the winter months when the weather is appropriate.

Why not come along on these evenings, bring your camera and hone up your skills whether you are a beginner, of experienced user.

The Club Programme for the current season 2015 - 2016 is shown below. Please note that there may be amendments necessary as the season proceeds due to unforseen circumstances.
