Month: October 2020

Thursday 29th October

Hope everyone enjoyed a night off last week. This Thursday is the very exciting awards presentation evening, massively delayed due to Covid. Looking forward to seeing all the winning images πŸ˜ŠπŸ† Don’t forget entries for competition 2 set subject ‘Broken’ are due in to by Sunday tea time. Plus a gentle reminder that subs are also due at the fantastically discounted rate of only Β£20 for the year! Bargain 😊

Thursday 22nd October

Just a reminder that the light painting evening has been postponed, so we don’t have a meeting this Thursday. Enjoy your night off and we’ll see you on the 29th for the awards evening πŸ˜ŠπŸ†

Light painting cancelled

Given that Lancashire is now in Tier 3 lockdown, we have made the decision to cancel this week’s light painting at Williamson Park. Hopefully we will be able to run this early next year instead. Sorry for the disappointment, but it is the safest option. As it is such short notice, there is no replacement session unfortunately, so enjoy a night off and I will see you all for the awards presentation evening on the 29th October 😊
