The latest Covid restrictions make it it seem unlikely that the Table Games groups activities will resume before the New Year. It really could be a miserable last 3 months of 2020.
With this in mind we have decided to offer an ‘on-line’ Bridge session. This would be organised using BBO at a time to suit folk. BBO is ‘free’ to sign up and our games would be members only.
If you are interested then please contact Cath or Phil.

In the short to medium term it looks like our activities will be restricted to the bi weekly photo displays. After Terry asked for feedback on the groups current activities it seems we have a few of issues that need to be addressed. Basically, these are:
- members want to continue with the group
- members want to continue our current 2 weekly displays
- some tech help needed with ‘uploading images’
The future subjects and dates are:
21 Sep night shots Some tips here
05 Oct the town 19 Oct gardening
02 Nov industrial 16 Nov shapes 30 Nov churches/cathedrals
14 Dec Open subject
The rules are very straightforward: A maximum of 3 NEW pictures submitted to Terry a couple of days before the due date. It is helpful if the image size is reduced to 500 Kb !
As before, the collected images will be published on the web site but will also be ‘vetted’ and the ‘best’ 3 will be notated accordingly. No prizes but ‘bragging rights’
If anyone wants help with uploading images or any technical help with IT or photography then please contact Phil or any of the DigiCam or IT teams.
If you have a general query, that maybe of group interest, use the ‘reply’ function.
