  • Message from Liakat Parapia- ACC Club President
  • I am now into a few months of my presidency of this successful Club. This is entirely due to the great effort of Jean Middleton, our previous President, and our dedicated committee. We have had a very good start to the year with a well-attended Open Evening. We have recruited several new members, many of whom are experienced photographers. Our meetings are attracting a record number of members and I understand our finances are healthy in spite of not raising our membership fee.
  • We have an excellent programme (available on the website) which includes visiting speakers, competitions, workshops, etc. We also have visits organised locally and away. A special thanks to our syllabus secretary Steve Richardson. Jane Wainwright and her team of ladies do excellent work in providing us with refreshments every evening. Also thanks to Chris Owens, and other committee members for their enormous support.
  • This year we have two additional competitions. A winter competition open to the public (excluding club members) on a theme of Travel and Landscape. The first prize is a £100 voucher (Morgans Travel), two canvasses (Jessops) and a junior prize of £50 (Blue Estate Agents). The second competition is an in-house one on a single "Funniest Photo" for which a Trophy will be awarded.
  • Also, another addition to the programme is a tribute to First World War Soldiers in the form of an exhibition and presentation of members ‘ photographs.
  • The latest news and photographs are also available on Facebook and Twitter.
  • We welcome new members and visitors at any level of ability. This year we are offering a free discount card from Jessops to all members.
  • I am hoping for a successful and enjoyable year for all our members. I am already very grateful for all the support.
  • Wishing you all a Merry Xmas and a Happy New Year.
  • Liakat Parapia - President.
