Autumn 2017

Time has just flown by so quickly since the last newsletter.

When we retired , we wondered how we would fill our days, would we get bored, or even worse, lonely.  We now have to mark some 'days off' on our calendar to ensure we have some time to relax and catch our breath.  

Enough excuses, on with the update. Helen.

July 7th. Summer Social Evening.

Hosted once again by Clare and John Robinson.  Sadly due to holidays and other commitments only 8 people were able to attend, but those that did go had an enjoyable time.  Thank you to John and Clare.

September 4th.  Open Competition No 2 for the Underwood Trophy.

Other Clubs were invited to join us for this demonstration, twenty five people attended and found the talk informative and interesting. Our thanks to Brian.

On October 2nd Kate Rendell then did an excellent follow-up talk about using her drone.

The winner was Kate Rendell with 'Blists Hill'

During the summer some members were busy filming far flung parts of Gloucestershire which were then edited together by Chris Wheatley for our

Annual autumn Public Show  on

October 16th.

Gloucestershire on Film

The show was well attended and seems to have been well received.


Finally, we were saddened to learn of the death of former member Charles Yates.   A true gentleman, he will be remembered particularly for his  participation in the club drama competition films.

Our thanks to all who provided the video clips especially members of Cheltenham Video Makers and Kate for all her drone footage which added an extra dimension.
