Day & Time: 2nd Friday of the month from 2 pm – 4 pm

Venue: Victoria Hall – currently suspended

Please note that due to current COVID-19 social distancing and safety precautions the Organising Team has concluded that it is impractical to meet physically at the Victoria Hall. Instead, we have started to use Zoom virtual meetings and continue sharing photographs via the Ash U3A Beacon email system.

Here is the latest bulletin from the group which you can download by clicking the link:

Ash U3A Photography Group 2020-21 bulletin No 6

The monthly photo subject, with members submitting up to three photos, is a major feature where the emphasis is on the story behind the picture rather than its technical excellence. The theme for Febuary 2021 is “Doors, buildings and modern life”.  Deadline for submission is 7th March 2021.

The annual competition was held in June 2020. There were 60 entries from 20 members in three categories:

  1. Colour theme – black & white
  2. Specific subject – Water
  3. Open category.

You can view the winning entries and the judge’s comments on them by clicking this link and downloading:
