Our next meeting will be on 2nd February which will give our lady members chance
to show what they’re made of ! NOT JUST FOR BOYS We are proud of the strength of
our female membership and tonight they entertain us with their digital image
skills.



The following week (9th) DAAN EKSTEEN & ALAN MEEK two of our members will be
showing NEPAL – WHERE EARTH MEETS THE SKY With so many Nepalese now living among
us as citizens of Folkestone, this is an opportunity to view their homeland and
understand something of their culture. This will be followed by Print
Competition No. 4 on the 16th February.



In between these evenings, our monthly Practical and Audio Visual evenings will
be held where members have an informal get-together discussing photography and
practising with the studio lighting equipment, and learning how to do audio
visual.



In addition, you may be interested to know that our Club will be holding an
Audio Visual workshop on 28th February. Further information can be found on our
website.



Our meetings are held at the St. Georges Church Hall, Audley Road, Folkestone
(on the corner of Shorncliffe Road, opposite West Station) on Mondays at 7.45pm.
