First Third Done

So that’s the first term of the 2015/16 season completed. It’s been an interesting and varied time for the club. We started off with a presentation evening where members showed some images taken during the summer break. This also gave us the opportunity to learn a bit more about our newer members. I gave a […]

Start of the Season

I spent the few months before the summer sorting out the 2015 – 2016 programme. This is the second year I have been responsible for the programme. When I took over I set out to make the club meetings more interactive. Whilst this move wasn’t popular with some members, the majority of the feeedback I […]

We didn’t hold an exhibition this year but still wanted a special evening to celebrate members’ achievements. This year we used a whole meeting dedicated towards the […]

[sws_picture_frame40 src=”” title=”Black-headed Gull” alt=”Black-headed Gull” align=”sws_frame_center” lightbox=”1″ album=”” video=””] [/sws_picture_frame40] A little belated, perhaps, but a Happy New Year to you all. It’s been quite busy for me so far, the reason being that I’ve been off work since 28th January, and I still have a few days left before I return. I’ve never […]

November Update

It’s been a few busy weeks down at the Club, or probably more importantly, in the background. The new Committee had their first meeting round at Neesam Towers. Mrs N. came up with the goods in the form of her legendary chocolate tiffin, and we even managed to sort out some club business. All eight […]

So here I am

They say if you want anything done ask a busy person. People often ask me how I find time to fit in all the stuff that I do. Being almost fully employed (technically, I am part time but I work eighty percent full time hours), I do find all my spare time is taken up […]
