IMPORTANT NEWS

2020 – 2021 Programme

The last twelve months or so must have been one of the most challenging periods in the history of Newton Abbot Photographic Club and its members.

First of all, we were forced suddenly to curtail our 2019-20 season before it reached its planned conclusion.  Then we lost a full year of indoor meetings as we migrated our re-arranged programme to meet via the ubiquitous Zoom, which has come to the rescue of so many organisations.

We swiftly adapted to this new medium and a core of members has regularly attended all our meetings. Competitions resumed, both internal and external, with judges and guest speakers able to present to us from afar, all very successfully.

Regular committee meetings, also via Zoom, ensured that the Club’s activities continued, not necessarily as originally planned, in fact some had to be hastily re-arranged “on the hoof” as it were. There have also been some changes in committee personnel along the way.  Nevertheless I should like to thank all committee members (in alphabetical order), Alan, Carol , Chris Marsham, Dave, Gordon, Heather,  Joanna, Kirsty and Pete for all their hard work and the parts they have played in keeping us going.

Now we can look forward, and you will later see our 2021-22 programme, starting in September, which we anticipate will see a resumption of meetings at the Courtenay Centre, subject to the prevailing circumstances of course. I am pleased to say that several former members have said they will rejoin the Club when that takes place and we can all see one another again, other than in a rectangular frame!

Finally I should like to thank all members who have persevered with NAPC, giving us a firm foundation for the future.
