However anyone who may need Technical Advice or specific assistance can between 10:15 and 10:30 consult one or more members the committee.      

Keeping in Touch.

Losing contact can so easily be something that we all have done in recent times. The past few years have been a trial for all and mixing in public has been a taboo.


We must all look forward to better times and embrace the world that we have. Many of us have shied away from meeting fellow photographers and have found that our own photography has faltered. Face book has been a refuge to many to keep alive their interests.


We in the Western Region have a Face book page which sadly only a few use. Whatever your views may be our Face book could offer that way forward. Postings not only of your photography but you can use it to keep up to date with what is happening in the WR region.


We can connect again, share constructive comment and find inspiration.

For this to work you would need join in.
