Our Chairman, Jason opened the meeting by welcoming everyone and covered the following:
- The next informal evening will be at The Angler’s Rest. David Allwood will announce the date of the evening in the near future, but it’s likely to be Jan or Feb 2016. The theme will be ‘Weather’, so start looking for weather images. Our last theme evening at the Angler’s Rest was ‘Movement’. Check out a selection of these images by clicking here: http://www.hopevalleyphotosociety.co.uk/?p=1265
- We are going to continue with the tradition of having a YearBook covering a favourite image taken by (hopefully) each member during the current year. Roger Moore will send an email to each member in the near future. I’ll place instructions on our website. Members should think about the image they’d like to have in the 2015 YearBook. The deadline for submitting your favourite image (preferably taken during 2015) is 17th January 2016;
- This year’s Christmas party will be on 10th December 2015, at the YHA’s Losehill Hall, Castleton Road, It’s a fantastic location, set in the grounds of a palatial old hall. I’ve shown the menu at the bottom of this post. So if you haven’t submitted your order, print out the menu and send your order to Erica;
- Ian Stanyon has volunteered to dress the Christmas tree at Castleton with small Christmas tags; with each tag containing a printed image submitted by many C&HVPS members. Make sure you checkout the tree and Ian’s hard work;
- Equally, why don’t you checkout the display of member’s images Ray Fowler has put in the Evelyn Medical Centre, Marsh Lane, Hope. Ray’s mounted these images on our new 120 degree six sided display board;
- Sheffield PS is holding an exhibition at Sheffield’s Winter Gardens. The exhibition finishes on 15th November – so there’s not much time left;
- The Rotary Club of Hope Valley is holding a Grand Christmas Charity Concert at Hope Valley College on the evening of Friday 27th Tickets are £10 each. Contact Keith Brown for tickets or further information.
