It would be good to see loads of images so, if you went on the Summer evening walks or the Annual Outing, please bring along a selection of your photographs for viewing.

Could you bring them on a usb stick split in to two folders, one titled "Summer" and the other titled "Portsmouth".

Let's have a really good turnout for the first night which will be free for everyone and don't forget that, once you've paid your Membership Fee, all the meetings and tea, coffee and biscuits are free till the end of the season.
