Venice with the Byrams

This from Tony and Jenny Byram…

Following a period of uncertainty – mainly about Jenny’s new hip – I am pleased to say that there will be a Venice Carnival Trip next February.

The final cost, which does not include flights but covers all accommodation (B&B) at Gatwick and in Venice, plus all the usual ‘extras’ is dependent on the latest £/€ rate but should be around £900. 

If you are interested send me an email tonytravel@blueyonder.co.uk and I’ll send you further details. 

Tony Byram.

Clive Minnitt Hangs Up His Boots

Well known lecturer Clive Minnitt has decided to retire from giving club lectures.

Clive says “I have been a speaker on the WPF circuit for many years (although infrequently speaking) and I have decided to hang up my boots, as it were, to concentrate my efforts on leading photographic tours for Light & land.”

We all wish him well in the future and thank him for the very enjoyable lectures he brought to clubs all over the WPF.
