The next monthly meeting of the Photography Group  is on Tuesday, 13th December 2016 starting at 2.30 pm in the Methodist Church Hall.

watermeadWe will be looking at images taken by our members on the theme of ‘Transport’ followed by a little Christmas fare and a good old natter about photography and the group in particular.

Anyone is welcome to join us.  Our monthly charge is 2 which covers the room cost with a little extra for ‘specials’.

We have already started to look at our outings for 2017 with visits to such places as Felley Priory and Whatton Gardens for the spring flowers.  Our outings are by car-share.  The last one we did was to Watermead at Leicester, a place we have all driven by many times but most never visited!  We were blessed with good photographic weather and enjoyed the afternoon.  Howard Fisher
