What a splendid turn out we had for the annual Art and Photography Exhibition on 24 September. Many thanks to all those who attended. We have received very many comments on the quality of the Members photography and how difficult it was to choose a winner. The photograph you liked the best is on show in the Hall along with the photograph that Alan Reed and myself chose. Both of the winning Members, Eric Penn and Ian Hughes, received their awards at our 6th October meeting. Such was the difficulty in choosing our winner we also decided to award a Runner-up prize to Alan Penn. Alan’s Kingfisher is on the wall. Well done to all three. The Centre is very grateful to you all for the £200 you spent on refreshments on the day. Thank you.
Eighteen of us assembled at Newmarket Races on Saturday 1st October. The event started with a heavy downpour for an hour and then the rest of the day was cloudy with a stiff breeze. Nevertheless, a good time was had by all with plenty of photographs and various successes, or not, with the Bookmakers. We suspect they came out on top but we had a lot of fun along the way.
We are visiting the Wimpole Estate in Cambridgeshire on 22 October. More on that in the next Newsletter.
New Club Members are always welcome at all levels so if you, or someone you know, is interested in joining us please contact Sue in the office on 01279 721221.
