Programme 2021-22

2021-2022     BPS v3  Programme.   


Special Interest Groups.


As you will see, no “workshops” are scheduled this year.  In place of workshops Marston will run a “Revision-Learning- Development Group” ideally for about 8 members, to become a Special Interest Group. 


This Development/Revision group will be  run alongside the other SIGS in Landscape, Flower, Street Photography and Project Groups.  

Meetings will be arranged over the course of the year, as arranged by the groups, consisting of zoom meetings and photoshoot meet-ups for the Landscape, Street and  Flower Groups as appropriate. New groups may be started.


Main Program


-On Monday 16th August the committee will discuss and decide on location of first meeting - depending on Covid situation at the time. 

-Any additional speakers/events for the whole club will be added to this program via the website in red.

1. During the first half of the program, before Christmas, we have mainly speakers from distant parts of the country who will present via zoom


2. In due course, the committee will review the location of meetings depending on covid risks, social distancing situation, adequacy of ventilation etc. 


3. Presentations  where the speaker has said the talk would not, in any event,  be suitable for zoom have been noted as  “Not Zoom”


4.Any reduction in face to face meetings in the Hall, may hopefully be compensated for by photoshoot meet-ups by SIGS.
