This post covers two subjects that I have a tenuous link to.
At the final club meeting of 2019, Tuesday 7th May, Eloise Markwick of the Greensand Country Ridge Organisation (GCR) gave a 30 minute presentation entitled “Greensand Country”.
The Greensand Country Ridge is an elongated area just south of Bedford and stretches from Leighton Buzzard to Gamlingay. A map is shown below, click map to open a larger copy
Paul Curtis has news about Wallace Brown, the Bedford professional picture framers.
Paul tells us that Wally has now retired and the business has been taken over by his daughter.
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.

155th Bedford Amateur Rowing Regatta – Photo Opportunity
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.)
Following on from this Jonathan has just advised us that there is a RPS (Nature Group) walk planned at Sharpenhoe Clappers for Sunday 28th July 10am to 4pm.
Stowe Gardens – Walk Friday 5th July 2019 10am to 4pm
