For people who like making movies
Welcome to our latest newsletter,
While we have not been meeting together for around 18 months, it has been good that with Zoom and YouTube we have managed to keep going and even attract new members from many miles away.
The open competitions and normal club competitions have been well supported and we must thank Chris and Kevin for their enthusiasm to go where we have not been before.
Let us hope that we can get back to some type of normality soon, while making sure we do our best to keep safe in these difficult Covid 19 times.
We may need to observe some form of distancing /sanitizing hands etc. for some time to come.
We will need to comply with guidance from the Church Authorities.
