We look forward to welcoming you to any of our meetings.  We will continue to do our best to keep you updated on our programme & activities together with any updates to our web site.

A few of our members like taking photos.  If you find this of interest please contact us for further details or just to chat.

Field Trips are a regular feature of our activities many being local but a couple of times a year we go further afield for a few days residential to places such as Titchwell in North Norfolk, Minsmere in Suffolk or  Portland Bill and this year North Kent
