On Thursday, we had a successful opening night after having a great catch up with our members and it was lovely to see some new faces!

Our next meeting is on Thursday 10th October. We will be having a focus on getting ready for competitions. This will give our members an insight into what judges are looking for and sizing images using different editing software.

If you are interested in joining our club then don’t worry as we take on new members all year around. Come along to the Church of Ascension in Torrisholme on Thursdays at 7:30pm!
