And we are up & running

Programme for Season 2021 - 2022

As we emerge from restrictions we are retaining some flexibility in our planning in case things do not normalise as expected.  For now, this programme provides a solid framework for our ambitions and we very much look forward to an entertaining year.  As we approach each event further details will appear under 'What's On'.

All meetings start at 19.30hrs - unless specified otherwise

8th SEPTEMBER

Reviewing the Best of Lockdown 

In a relaxed opening meeting we look back at some of the 'runners and riders' who took part in our online photography programme.  We will reflect on some of the stand out images from the past 18 months.  An extended break will provide an opportunity to catch up and meet new people.  We will include a brief 'extraordinary' meeting slot to ratify a couple of decisions needed on finance and our competition format.
