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.
