Please note that due to Covid-19 we are not holding club meetings at present. Instead we have Zoom events for every Friday in September, and for the first and third Fridays of the month thereafter. These are available to all paid up club members and you should receive an email from Iain with instructions on how to participate. We are aiming to start 'live' meetings again in January but depending on Covid-19 regulations etc. the rest of the programme is subject to change, and print competitions may be changed to dpi.
