Quick catch up

Evening all

Unusually, I’ve been quiet for a while – visiting a few campsites before the school holidays. We had a few days at Thirsk – James Herriot country and the dog must have known because she didn’t like being on one side of the street. A few days ago we returned from 8 days in the Cotswolds. Nice and picturesque, but nowt to compare to Yorkshire

A quick reminder – cycle race in town on Friday – good for action shots for the Photojournalism, etc, competition, open and B&W perhaps.

21st August – Cannon Hall 6pm photo shoot. Not sure how many will make it to this, but has a decision been made about the best place to park and meet up at Cannon Hall, then those who are meeting/picking up anyone at Emmanuel Church know where to find us? By ‘best’ place to park, I’m using my Barnsley politeness to say ‘park b’art paying’ – as you probably guessed, but it’s only a couple squid for a couple of hours, I think.

Below is some detail from the YPU about this year’s Keighley Day, along with an attached flier about the speaker they have booked for the day. It’s quite a while off, yet, so there will be reminders before then.
