The club exhibition is now up and running at Woolston Library. As you can see from the photos, some of our printed images are on display around the library on top of the bookshelves. The purpose is essentially to advertise the club, and we will seek opportunities to move the exhibition to other venues.

I think you will agree that the images look great on display like this, and is a great way to re-use those competition entries we all worked so hard on.

A big thank you to all that attended and donated to the Astley Green Colliery Museum. Dave was able to hand over a donation of £80, but I know other members placed their donations in the on-site collection tins, so I'm sure we must have donated in the region of £100 overall. The donation was really gratefully received.

Alan informs us that he is now away for three weeks covering the dates that we had him booked for. Therefore in order to accomodate him and ensure that he is still able to deliver his back to back sessions, we have had to rejig the calender.
