Penultimate Meeting of the Season

This Thursday 9th June for our club meeting we have a photowalk, a chance to meet up and enjoy a stroll around Stockers farm and lake in Rickmansworth. A great social opportunity to catch up with other members and potentially take some Interesting photos on the walk. David Eckland will be leading the walk (all details in this newsletter) which I am sure will be a good evening.

The following week 16th is our Summer party/Awards presentation night. Once again a not to be missed evening. A chance to celebrate the successful Images of this season in a nice sociable atmosphere.

Our season finale is on the 18th June where after a three year absence Croxley Revels on the Green is back and we are proud to have our marquee amongst the many stalls at the show. It’s an opportunity to remind everyone local of our club and encourage a few new members to join us and help them develop their Interest in photography.

It would be great if as many as possible of our current members could visit the stand during the Saturday afternoon and help fly the club flag in this promotion day. We need some of your prints to display in the Marquee so please bring along up to three prints each to the awards night for us to proudly display and show our talented members work to the visiting public at the Revels.

Thanks to those members that have volunteered to help with the day, whose help is greatly appreciated by the club and enables this Important event to take place.

See everyone on Thursday

Cat Shoots Stars of the West End

If you’re going into any of the shops, eateries and estate agents in Chorleywood be sure to pick up a copy of Chorleywood Magazine’s February 2021 Special Edition. It features images of some of the socially distant events covered by our very own Cat Humphries. In

between lockdowns Cat was able to photograph two West End stars performing a Back Garden Busk, she met The Audacious Mr Astley and had A Slice of Saturday Night at Watford Fringe, and finally ended the year chasing a panto dame and a London Bus around the streets of Chorleywood. Hopefully as lockdown restrictions are lifted, she’ll be able to go back to being the resident photographer for Rickmansworth Players and represent us at the return of Croxley Revels later in the year.

Cat, Ant and Gordon images went down well at the recent Croxley Green Show. Congratulations to each of them!
