|We are a club
of 30, with many of our members having to shield" during
this pandemic and continue to do so. We have continued with zoom
committee and group meetings and have had two attempts at organising
socially distanced meetings, the first was cancelled due to the
weather and the 2nd as the "rule of six came in.
We organised a photographic competition in Aid of Cornwall Air
Ambulance and are now in the process of putting a calendar together,
A4 which drops to A3. The calendar will cost £5, With most
of the profits going to the Air Ambulance. With this in mind,
If other clubs would consider a bulk order, then we are happy
for them to contact us with a view to reducing the cost of the
calendar so that they can make some money for their own club charities.
We are hoping to get more speakers in our group meetings starting
this Tuesday 22nd, with a speaker from Medical Detection
Dogs. We continue to work together, contact our members
regularly and posting minutes and information to those whom do
not have internet access. Many of our members have managed to
safely get together during the summer in their gardens for morning
coffee, lunch and afternoon tea.

type of calendar to be produced with the winning photos.
