A new year arrives almost with the same clockwork as Tom's publicity......

Tom's January Publicity

Another year gone by.. .. I wonder what this New Year has in store for us. Another 365 days if we are lucky!
One thing is certain - the Fordingbridge Camera Club is alive and well. We meet at Avonway Community Centre at 7.30pm on alternate Wednesdays. Our website, has our programme for the season. It is a mixture of talks by visiting top photographers, coupled with opportunities to show your work and have it commented on by experienced photographic judges.
In addition to our regular meetings, we are devoting many evenings to Practical Photography, a group to help members who are new-comers to photography. These sessions have proven to be very popular but are only open to club members. We have a short break over Christmas but will be back again on 7th January.

Christmas crackers are notorious for truly terrible jokes; some I have seen recently confirm this.
What does the Queen call her Christmas Broadcast? The One Show.
Why don’t you ever see Santa in hospital? Because he has Private Elf Care.
What’s round and bad tempered? A vicious circle.
Why didn’t the skeleton go to the New Year’s party? He had no body to go with.
Why was Santa’s little helper feeling depressed. He had low elf-esteem.
What do you call a penguin in the Sahara desert? Lost!
If you have done all the cooking over Christmas I bring you news of two cannibal ladies standing talking by a large cooking pot; Guest: “I hate your ex-husband.” Cook: “So – just eat the vegetables!”

I promise I will not subject you to any more of these corny jokes – until next Christmas.
May all your troubles only last as long as your New Year resolutions.
