2016 Group Calendar

2016 Group Calendar

We were pleasantly surprised by both the number and the quality of the entries that were received for our group's first photography competition. We would like to extend our congratulations to John Britten, Kevin Marsh, Peter Miller, Chris Shaw, Amy Wrisdale, Brian Dawson, Mike Bunting, Mike Pugh, Graham Bell and Philip Cooper, whose winning photographs have been selected for the 2016 Group calendar. The overall winner was Peter Miller and his image of a great crested grebe will appear on the cover of the calendar. We would like to thank all of those that entered the competition and helped to make it such a success. All of the entries will be shown during our December meeting. The calendar, which will contains details of our programme of events for next year, is currently at the printers and they will be available to buy during our indoor meetings and coach trips this autumn.
