Thank you to everyone who entered the SB Cup and Landscape Cup last week.

We had a great show of images and two worthy winners in Mike Brankin and Stuart Craig. 

Congratulations also go to Rod Lacey, Anthony Highet, Vanessa Lacey, Archi Bagworth, Gordon Calder and Cat Humphries who all received commendations for their images.

There's no meeting this week due to the upcoming Easter weekend so we look forward to seeing you all on Thursday 25th April when Tom Chesterton will be leading us on a walk around the Chess Valley.

Meet outside the Community Club at 7.15pm.
We have had to make some changes to the club programme - please see below for details

A talk not to be missed! Croxley is very pleased to welcome Sony Imaging Ambassador and Digital Photographer Wildlife Photograph of the Year winning Andrew Scriven to talk about how he uses mindfulness in his photography.

Nominations and Questions for the AGM will be required by Monday 6th May. This will allow for the committee to be prepared in advance.

A question and nomination forms will be available at the next meeting.

The Members Choice Vote will also take place on this night, with drinks and nibbles, so we're trying to make the AGM a quick and easy process.

All of the current committee are prepared to be nominated to stand for the next year, and we welcome new nominations to strengthen the skills within the committee or as co-opted parts of the team. Help with publicity, marketing, event organizing, and booking judges or speakers would be very much appreciated.

If you'd like to volunteer, please speaks to the committee.

Say Hello!

It can be hard venturing to a club for the first time, not knowing who is who and what the meeting is about. To make it a better experience for visitors we are introducing a team of Welcomers to greet members and visitors at the door on club nights. 

You'll be the friendly face of the club, introducing visitors to the committee and to other members.

Thank you to David for volunteering to be our first Welcomer, and also to George, Denise and Ant who have also offered to make our members and visitors feel welcome at the door.

If you'd like to help, please let Steve know and he'll add you to the rota.
