Photography – Art for the Untalented. – Thursday 8th November

Colin Lusby will present with A3 Colour and monochrome prints covering a variety of subjects, the vast majority of which are new or have been produced within the last 12 months. This is very much a ‘light hearted’ talk, questions, comments and feedback are welcomed.

Colin who hails from Grimsby has previously entertained us with tales of Haddock as well as judging for us. Its always proved an entertaining night.

Exhibition at Swarkestone Nursery 20/21st October

The society is holding an exhibition at Swarkestone Nursery on the 20th and 21st October. This will be held in the Garden Centre over the weekend. We really need volunteers to help setup/take down the stands and man the stands on either of the days.

We are planning to setup at 8 O’clock  on the Saturday and need people manning the stand 9 to 5-30 on Saturday and 10 – 4:30 on Sunday. Additionally we need help taking the exhibition down on Sunday and transporting back to the storage at Thomas Cook Hall

We also need prints to exhibit, so if you can bring any on Thursday the 18th. So if you can help in any way please  let Tony Pedley know please.
