That compact says, in essence, that the speaker will give his/her time to the clubs for no remuneration. Reasonable expenses are payable and those […]

The Ace of Prints should have had a closing date of 21st June and a judging date of 5th July and we would normally now be sending out a formal reminder and a set of rules.

We choose our 2 Clubs for the […]

David’s List of You Tube Videos

This from David Straker at Abergavenny… Thanks David!

In case anyone is kicking their heels, I’ve added a page on the Abergavenny website for interesting YouTube channels, including for general photography and editing.

For the uninitiated, channels contain multiple videos and are often the work of one person or team.
