May Club Meeting – Creative

A massive thanks to Chris Caverley for organising them and to Dave Gilbert for some expert advice on good places to see wildlife. So…

Lockdown lovelies

It was in June that we asked members to send us their favourite lockdown photos – those images that were taken during lockdown. Whilst we still can’t meet as a club yet, members are still taking fabulous photos at every opportunity. Enjoy.
