We are now entering that period of time, when many members start to take their holidays and for some the opportunity to get travelling with their camera, and to capture some different pictures. Have a great time, and I look forward to seeing some of this work in the coming months. I have just a brief update on some of the events on the programme.
Peak District Heather 9th August.
The planned evening field trip has been cancelled. Apologies, the leader has picked up an injury, that makes walking on rough terrain somewhat of a challenge. In addition the moors are tinder dry at present, we have all seen the news reports on the moorland fires. It will be back in next years summer programme.
Street Photography , Matlock Bath. Sunday 9th September
We are looking for a member to coordinate the event. The location is ideal for such activities, and the opportunities are enormous on a dry Sunday. If you have the time to arrange the logistics etc please let Paul or John Z know please.
Melbourne Art Festival, 14th to 16th September
The annual exhibition is being arranged this year by Tony Pedley, our exhibitions secretary. We are looking for members to provide prints for display and to assist on the evening of Friday 14th , with setting up the display, and during the weekend, on the stand, to welcome visitors. You don’t need to be there all of the time, but just for a time slot of 1 to 4 hours. If you are available to assist please let Tony know.

Some of you may have noticed the societies website was down for several days. There appears to have been an issue with the hosts configuration, that meant you were seeing a different website when trying to reach our website. This is now resolved. Thank you for the various members of the society who reported this, and assisted with the diagnosis of the fault.
