Last year the club agreed to judge, and sponsor a small trophy, for the Herefordshire Girlguiding photography competition. The event was held successfully but we were unable to present the trophy to the winner due to COVID related restrictions. Happily on the 11th June Girlguiding Herefordshire were once more able to hold their annual Award Event which celebrates all aspects of achievement including Long Service Awards, Leadership Qualifications and Good Service Brooches.
The club outing by steam train from Cheltenham to Broadway and then on by coach to Bourton-on-the-Water took place on Saturday 28th May. Club members and friends left Hereford by coach at 08.30 in eager anticipation and we were blessed with lovely weather, if somewhat breezy. We had a whole carriage reserved for us and the one hour train journey was very interesting with lots to see along the way.

We are very sad to report the death of our former Chairman and founding member Robert "Bob" Hall.
A lifelong Salvationist, we say he has been Promoted to Glory. He was an encourager and inspiration to those of us new to photography and also to the more proficient photographer.
