Droitwich Camera Club is alive and well and we have remained active throughout lock down, despite the challenges that all camera clubs have faced. We have taken advantage of technology and had several video presentations over the past few months with speakers from far and wide including France and Ireland, which we definitely could not have done before. We have now invested in an annual video communications subscription to ensure that we can continue to have such presentations when our new season starts.
We have run regular ‘lock down’ competitions on a range of topics, the only rule being that the images must have been taken since March when the pandemic began. In addition, to ensure that we remain engaged with our members, we have published a monthly Newsletter for the first time. This has not only kept everyone informed of developments, but it has also included articles, stories and images from our own members on a wide range of photographic topics, which has proved very popular. Our members have also been active entering external competitions and the attached image of Amethyst Deceiver Mushrooms won Robin Couchman a place in the Worcestershire Wildlife Trust 2021 Calendar.
We are very much looking forward to our 2020-21 Season which starts on 7th September and although we are not able to meet face-to-face until further notice, we have a full and exciting programme of speakers, competitions and events which will take place via video presentations until we are able to resume our normal meetings. These presentations will be on Monday evenings, our usual meeting night. For full details visit our website at: www.droitwichcamera.co.uk
To help everyone affected by the pandemic our subscription fees will remain unchanged for another season and the usual weekly fee of £3 will be voluntary until further notice.
