Camera Club Reports: Summer Outings

All evenings start at 7pm prompt although we may wait 2-3 minutes for late-comers.

Please ensure you have contact mobile numbers for Ray Lewis and/or the leader of the evening outing: you will have received these by e-mail from Alan. Call if you will be late and wish to join up.

Wet weather - England, as we know can be wet. No evening will be called off although it may be obvious that the event may not go ahead as planned. It is your decision if you wish to attend the venue to see if others are there. A dry pub will normally be found nearby.

This programme is a private venture and is not legally associated with Whitchurch Hill camera club. You attend and participate at your own risk to yourself, your equipment and your vehicle.

We do not guarantee your enjoyment but we do expect you to have a good time!!
