Paul has kindly negotiated with them for a special mount price for Bedford Camera Club members which I am sure will be of interest to you.

RPS – Sharpenhoe Clappers

Last Saturday seven BCC members joined 18 others for a large, successful RPS day’s walk, perfectly organised by Jonathan Vaines and Ann Miles, around the coast line of Dovercourt. Despite the threat from scary storm Hannah, which kindly just feather-edged us for part of the day, judging by all the smiling faces and laughter, everyone enjoyed it. We explored an area, rich in photographic potential, that I would never have been to otherwise. There was top notch help and advice whenever you looked confused (which is my normal expression.)
