Group report

This is an article published in the Summer 2017 edition of the Hayling Island U3A newsletter...

Following our report in the last newsletter the photo group members have now put some prints in the HIADS theatre.

Our last two subjects have been testing. "Arrows" and "Photoshop". We all thought Arrows would be simple but it was difficult to find something a bit different. At the June meeting we discovered we need to learn more about Photoshop. We plan to do something about this at a later meeting!

The subject for our July meeting is "Footpaths" and this will get us out and about and the August subject "Wooden buildings" will need some searching as there don't seem to be many to be found.

We continue to learn, to enjoy and have fun at our meetings.

The Photo Group continues to flourish with members enjoying the test of coping with a set subject each month - with interesting and varied results.  The March display at the library, which was set up by Brian Smith and other members, is a good showcase for our work.  We have been asked to put on a display at the Station Theatre in July which we hope theatre goers will enjoy.

We would like a few more lady members - would the lure of tea or coffee on arrival persuade you to join us?

Unfortunately Ann Davies who led our group for some time has had to step down through ill health. We shall miss her input and wish her better health in the future.  Wendy Wildey, with help from Pat Robbins, is now leading the group.
