Next week (17th January) we shall be viewing a slide presentation of the Clay Cross & Bywater Photographic Society National Exhibition 2004, which is a selection of work entered by national photographers. This work is always of a fantastic high standard of photography and a joy to see. A very stimulating evening and is always thoroughly enjoyed by all the members. 

24th January will be our first ‘Battle’ of the season, against Gateway Camera Club and on the 31st we shall be seeing another slide show presentation of the Photographic Alliance of Great Britain Inter Federation Slide Exhibition; this again will be a superb evening showing work from other clubs from around the country, and a firm favourite with our members each year.

Our meetings are held at the United Reform Community Hall, Castle Hill Avenue,
Folkestone on Mondays at 7.45pm. New members are always welcome, if interested
