A Letter from the Chair

Alan Copeland, WHCC chairmanThe major event this season must be the re-opening of Whitchurch Bridge.  The closure affected us very badly last year but I hope that, now we are again accessible to members south of the Thames, we shall see membership numbers increasing back to the dizzy heights we reached a couple of years ago.

This season’s Programme includes our usual regular competitions for colour prints, monochrome prints and digital projected images and we also take part in a number of competitions against other Camera Clubs in the Chilterns Association.

In addition to this, I have booked some top level speakers who are experts in their field of photography and we will also enjoy presentations from a number of our own members covering many aspects of modern photography.

I am pleased to confirm that the monthly Practical Photography Group meetings are back again.  The dates are shown in the Programme and the subjects covered will be notified to members a week or two prior to the meeting.

Click on this map to view a fully-interactive Google map of our locationHave a look at the Programme on the website.  Here you will find links to the websites of our visiting speakers which will enable you to have a preview of their work and find out a little background detail before their presentation.

You don’t have to be an expert to join our club. Just look through the Programme and come along and meet us at our next meeting – I guarantee you will not be disappointed.

Alan Copeland, Chairman

Cycling Across France - Caen to Cannes

posted by Ian Lewis in Club Meetings

This evening – the phrase that comes to mind ……….”On yer bike!”

This was because the faithful gathered at the village hall for an evening with Steve Rock who came all the way from Goring! No – not to tell us about his journey over from there but of a cycle trip he made starting from our riverside neighbour and finishing among the beautiful(?) people at Cannes!

His presentation was called “Cycling Across France – Caen to Cannes” – the French version of Coast to Coast! Leaving the ferry at Caen, he told us the story of his journey in images and narrative. What a variety of roads! There were the long, straight tree-lined ones typical of France, back roads which degenerated into muddy lanes – and leg-tormenting mountain passes through the south of the country! We were introduced to the people he met en route (bit of the lingo there y’see!) – cyclists heading to Spain, Istanbul and Malta (wonder if they managed to get to these places?). There were the places he stayed at and meals he enjoyed – (but all to a strict timescale ‘cos he was booked on to the train from Cannes!). He even found the time (and energy) to explore off-route byways!!  At when he reached the Mediterranean and Cannes – it was festival time! Then it was on the train to Paris and Eurostar to London. A quick bike ride from St Pancras to Paddington – then the train to Goring – then just a short pedal home!!

A lovely evening Steve – we all thoroughly enjoyed it and look forward to seeing other far-flung places you’ve cycled to!!
