On Monday 29th November we held our annual Len Charles Cup Competition which is where members may show up to 15 slides, of any subject as long as the are connected, along with a commentary. Six members entries were shown and judged by our own members and it proved to be a difficult task in finding a winner.

Winner of the Trophy was:- Bob Brisley – ‘Dubai’ 

Other entries were received from :- Keith Radford, - ‘London’   David Hughes - ‘Southampton to Rarratonga’’,   Bill Grudgings – ‘Classic Cars’  Ian Stone – ‘Tibet’,  and Tony Reeves – ‘Budapest’.

Monday 13th December, we will be seeing a recorded exhibition of the London Salon 2004 photographs, showing the class of work in which  there is a distinctive evidence of artistic feeling and execution.  This is always a popular evening where we can see international photographers work which we hope, will give us inspiration. The following Monday will be our Christmas Social where Denis Bridges (another long-standing member of the club) sets many members slides to music for a very informal and fun evening where a couple of games will also be arranged,. This along with food and drink brings in the Christmas spirit and a very friendly and enjoyable evening.
