8th Annual Havant Consituency Community Information Fair

We recently attended local MP Alan Mak's 2023 Community Information Fair, and our secretary Jan features in this news article about it.

Jan Andrew from the Hayling Island Camera Club, who attended the Fair, said: "Thank you Alan for inviting us to the Fair again this year. It is a great opportunity to meet local people and show the work that we do as photographers and how they can get involved with us and the wider community".

Postponement of Monday 19th September meeting.

Following the sad news of the passing of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II, and further to the news that her funeral will be held on Monday 19th September, and that this will be a public holiday; we have made the difficult decision to postpone the meeting that was scheduled for Monday 19th September as a mark of respect. This was to be our first members workshop.

But fear not - we have been able to secure the URC hall on Friday 23rd September instead. We'll be running the same things with print mounting, basic computer tips to prepare images for PDI (including exporting at the correct size!), and more, so please do come along as usual.

Again - that's now Friday 23rd September, 2022 for the members workshop.

First night back, membership fees, and new Facebook page...

As mentioned in our members newsletter, we ask you to please ensure you attend our first evening back of the new season on 5th September. We have an Emergency General Meeting to vote in a new President and other Committee positions.

Additionally, we remind you that subs for the new season are now £45 and may be paid by direct bank transfer (details were in the recent newsletter sent out) or in person on the night. We have a great programme of speakers, competitions, and workshops, making for excellent value for money...

Finally, we have launched our brand-new public facing Facebook page. Please like, follow, and share to all your photography inclined friends!
