Notes:

Show/tell = present your own work and have feedback from the group.

Share/discuss = mixed pictures handed round for detailed examination.

Please bring the specified number of pictures so that the “balance” is

right  (no hidden agenda – they can be all your own choice)

WCPF Exhibition = voluntary and optional entries from photographers

but it might be worth using pre March 2018 meetings for share/discuss

Tea/coffee duties – if you cannot be there for your shift please ask

someone to cover for you. First named = milk: second = biscuits!

If you make it you don’t pay for it.
