Further updates on Club activities will be published here when confirmed:
6th October 2020 – 7.00pm for 7.30pm start
This is the date scheduled for our next ‘get to know Zoom’ meeting, especially for those who did not join us last time, but of course the meeting is open for all members. Please contact the Committee if you need any help on setting up Zoom, which is quite easy. We do hope you can join your old friends for a fun evening, see some lovely photographs, and learn something new at the same time.
25th September 2020
The 2020-21 programme is now published on the ‘Programme tab’. The committee have decided to hold several Zoom meetings on the Second and Fourth Tuesday of the month until at least January 2021. You will see that we can join the Zoom speakers’ talks from Middleton, Steyning and Chichester for a small fee. In addition to the Zoom meetings, there are a few ‘socially distanced’ outings – weather permitting, and providing the current rules don’t change. We may need to amend the programme in due course.
22nd September 2020
Following our first Zoom meeting of the new season, please see the ‘posts’ tab for further details.
17th September 2020
It is encouraging to see some members are taking advantage of joining Zoom meetings organised by other clubs, and it appears many clubs are on a ‘Zoom’ learning curve. We are very pleased to confirm Worthing Camera Club now has a Zoom Account, and members will be sent a ‘link’ to join a welcome meeting to be held on Tuesday 22nd September in the evening (time will be confirmed in the ‘link’ e-mail). The Committee will be informing members what will be forthcoming in the new programme, however this is still being finalised. We do hope as many members can join us for an ‘unusual’ start to the 2020/21 season.
21st August 2020
Unfortunately, as many of you will be aware, the situation regarding Coronavirus is still very much part of our lives. Regretably the Committee have reluctantly agreed that Worthing Camera Club will not be re-commencing in September as was originally planned. However, it is hoped that the programme will commence in January 2021 but this is very much dependant on the Coronavirus situation. The Committee continue to work in the background organising summer outings wherever possible, and the Programme Secretary has been working extremely hard to move dates forward and secure dates for speakers and judges. In the event that the club will be unable to re-commence in January 2021 with a revised programme, the whole programme scheduled to commence for this September will be moved to September 2021. Further details will be published when finalised.
In the meantime, we have had invitations to join Zoom meetings with Middleton and Steyning Camera Clubs, as well as links to other photographic events. Members will be notified via the groups.io e-mail in the usual way.
23rd June 2020
Due to the relaxing of the Coronavirus social distancing guidelines, a Summer Programme has been organised for club members. Details will be sent to all members when finalised.
Re: Coronavirus (COVID-19)
With regard to the Prime Minister’s recent news conference in which he tells all of us to avoid social contact, it is now clear that the time has come to cancel the rest of the our programme for this season. It is a shame and very disappointing but we must try to protect our members and the wider community.
In addition, the warden of the Quaker Meeting House where our meetings take place, has informed the Committee that they have cancelled our club sessions until further notice.
We hope all members keep safe and well, and hope to see you all for the new season starting in September.
Worthing Camera Club Committee
