MESSAGE FROM THE PRESIDENT
UPDATE TO SEASON 2020-2021
Due to the sudden passing of our President and friend Roy Balfour, as Vice President, I have the privilege to continue his good work and take up the post of acting President until the AGM at the end of season 2020-2021.
Roy will be sadly missed by all especially for his kindness, generosity, loyalty and unwavering support for the club.
Hopefully season 2021-2022 will see us back to normality with club with meetings and competitions ready to resume.
The coming season sees us competing in a Battle Across the Oceans with a club from South Africa. This would not have been possible without the input of Roy Balfour and it saddens us that he will not be able to participate or see his idea come to fruition.
We have been fortunate to have enjoyed a greater number of presenters from far and wide due to the current lockdown situation. However, it is always good to meet up with friends, fellow photographers and meet face to face the judges and speakers.
Stay safe everyone, keep snapping and enjoy the weekly Zooms we still have to offer.

2021 AGM -
All members required to attend.
26th January 2021 - A tribute to our President, Roy Balfour, who died suddenly on the 25th January 2021
Roy was larger than life, one of a kind. Not only a fellow photographer, but also a very good friend. He was passionate about his photography and about his beloved camera club. His main interest in photography was birds in the wild and all things nature - in fact he set himself up as the leader of a breakout group at KPS (better known as the Tufty Club) where he would organise group outings for the nature lovers among us. Such was his love of this type of photography, Roy set off on adventures in Hungary (with Zoltan) and South Africa to the national parks. He had so many travels still to undertake and so many photographs yet to shoot.
Roy was well known for his humour, passion, and willingness to help anyone in need. His giving nature and kindness knew no bounds and he was always willing to give of his time and expertise (and lifts to meets). With his incredible zest for life, and an exuberance seen in few, his passing will leave a huge gap in the lives of many. Our club rooms will certainly be so quiet without him. His death has shocked our club and it has left many of us saddened, and angry, at the unfairness of it. Roy will be sorely missed. Sadly Roy did not get to see his image of a Hoopoe come in first place at our recent 'Battle of the Tartans' competition with Penwith Photographic Group - this would really have made his day. I hope you enjoy browsing his images.
