We held our fiirst meeting of 2022 at the Victoria Hall on 14th January. The Photography Group continues to thrive with a good attendance of 17 members and one potential new member at the meeting on Friday 14th January. This is particularly gratifying after the recent Omicron COVID pandemic developments. 

We are mounting an exhibition of the entries in our annual photography competition at Ash Library between 27th January and 3rd March 2022.


Library visitors are invited to vote for their favourite photo using voting slips and a balot box which the Photography Group have provided for the purpose.




The exhibition also features promotional material for Ash u3a and all Ash u3a members are welcome to visit the exhibition and vote for their favourite picture!




Here is the latest bulletin from the group which sets out our programme for the first quarter of 2022. You can download it by clicking this link:

Ash U3A Photography Group 2021-22 bulletin No 5

Regular physical meetings are set to continue into 2022 with the easing of COVID pandemic restrictions.

The monthly photo subject, with members submitting up to three colour photos and one black and white photo, is a major feature where the emphasis is on the story behind the picture rather than its technical excellence. The theme for January 2022 is “Hobbies and Pastimes”. Deadline for submission is 6th February 2022 for review at the meeting on 11th February 2022. 

If you are new to Ash U3A and would like to join our friendly Photography Group, you are welcome to attend the first meeting on a trial basis. Then, if you would like to join, please download the form below and after completion, send it to
