Thu 10 Dec 2020 - WCPF Members' Exhibition & Virtual Social!

This should have been our Christmas Social when we all bring food to share and play silly games and a quiz or two!  Covid has changed most of that but get yourself something to eat and drink, log in to Zoom and sit back and enjoy the evening.  Roger is going to set up a Seasonal Quiz (and there MIGHT even be a prize!) and we're going to have a look at some of the amazing images from the WCPF (Western Counties Photographic Federation) Members' Exhibition. Join in for a fun night!
