Thanks to everyone that attended, some good suggestions and feedback that we will discuss at future committee meetings. As soon as some minutes are available they will be circulated to members along with the financial report. We also had 5 new members sign up at the AGM which is a real success, given the agonising for months over whether we should move from the club's home for som many years in Grappenhall to Winwick. We've picked up around 12 new members in the last 6 months (about a quarter of our current membership).

Tonight the club held the fourth and final competition of the 2017-2018 club year, and the theme was "Warrington".  The club welcomed Nick Berentzen from South Manchester Camera Club to judge the images.

Points scored count towards the Photographer Of The Year competition - the results of which will be announced at the next club night, the AGM.

Following the committee meeting on Monday 22nd, we have more detail about the programme for the coming year, that I am in the process of entering on the website. However, whilst doing this I note that the wording for the next event was still in an old draft format and didn't accurately describe the next session. The wording sent out in the club newsletter was accurate, and has now been replicated on the club website programme page.

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.

The gallery for the recent "Song Titles" competition is now available. A great set of images I am sure you will agree. Congratulations to the winners. There is one more competition to enter for the 2017-2018 year, and is themed "Warrington". Get started on your images! They need to be submitted at the end of January 2018.

Tonight the club held the third competition of the 2017-2018 club year, and the theme was "Song Titles".  The club welcomed Colin Douglas from St Helens Camera Club to judge the images.

Points scored count towards the Photographer Of The Year competition. The winners and placings were as follows:-

Misplaced the latest newsletter? Accidentally deleted it? Don't worry I have added a new menu item on the news page to view the most recent club newsletter. This also means that the newsletter is available for visitors to view. 

The committee met on Monday 4th Sep and began work on the programme for the next club year. The skeleton structure is now laid out on the events menu. As guest speakers are confirmed, the details will be fleshed out. Please note that the programme is still flexible, and if you have any ideas for the programme please let the committee know.

I've updated the website to reflect our new meeting place of Winwick Leisure Centre. Our first meeting there will be for the next session (14th August) which will be a model night. Bring your cameras and your portrait lenses. Studio lighting and remote triggers will be provided. Visitors are welcome to observe but will be unable to take part due to limited time with the models - we have to prioritise paid up members.
