Tonight... Croxley Festival of Photography
Tonight we'll be celebrating our love of all things photographic. In our normal 7.45pm meeting at the community centre we'll get together to share our images, talk about what we enjoy about photography and demonstrate techniques. 

Thank you to everyone who has already signed up to get involved. It's not too late to join in, just bring along some photos. 

The event is part of our mission to promote photography in Croxley and the wider Three Rivers area. Over the past few months we've been getting more involved in community activities, with our photographers documenting Mill End Community Centre's Open Day, The Revels on the Green, Croxfest, and most recently the Remembrance Day Parade through the village.  

Our members have also worked with local businesses and groups, holding our Snap Chatters coffee mornings at The Kitchen, supporting the Croxley Green Society, Rickmansworth Players, YOPEY's befriending scheme, and local history projects. 
Our programme for winter/spring 2019 has now been published. Click here to get your copy.
