Welcome Group Sessions

The Welcome programme is new for the 2018-19 season and aims to help new members become a part of the society, particularly those who are joining a camera club for the first time. It is also open to members of the Standard Class who wish to develop their core technical skills. 
The programme consists of six sessions held on the third Sunday of September, October, November, January, February and March. These sessions are designed as mini-workshops - a brief introduction by an experienced member of the club followed by some practical experience outdoors, plus some challenges for members to explore on their own afterwards.
