Christmas is coming and soon Fordingbridge will be alive with colourful lights and the bustle of last minute shopping.
Some shoppers even now are reciting The Night Before Christmas - with an Internet twist. -
Twas the night before Christmas, when all through the Net - --
There were hackers a surfing, Geeks? Yeah, you bet.---
The emails were stacked by the modem with care, In hopes that St Nicholas soon would be there.” etc, etc.
Fordingbridge Camera Club remains the same happy, jolly environment and welcomes new members and visitors.
Our website, www.fordingbridgecameraclub.org.uk contains our programme for the year, a mixture of talks by visiting top photographers coupled with opportunities to show your work on top quality equipment and have it commented on by experienced photographic judges. Visitors are always welcome for a small fee. In addition to our regular meetings, we devote many evenings to those who want, as a group, to set themselves new challenges and then to review the results collectively. These additional sessions have proven to be very popular but are only open to club members.
It is also well worth looking at the photo galleries on our website – there are some wonderful photographs taken by your friends and neighbours in the Fordingbridge and district area. The standards of our members have risen over the years, aided by the advice of the photographic judges and the experience of other members.
Finally, may we wish a Happy Christmas to all our readers - always remembering that there is also a Day after Christmas - -
Twas the day after Christmas and all through the house---
The toys were all broken, their batteries dead; ---
Santa passed out with some ice on his head. --–
Wrapping and ribbons just covered the floor, -
While upstairs the family continued to snore. --–
And I in my T-shirt, new slippers and jeans, -
I went into the kitchen and started to clean.”
