The start of a new season for BHCC

In ‘normal’ times, Ballynahinch Camera Club meets on Thursday evenings in Edengrove Presbyterian Church Hall, Ballynahinch from the beginning of September until mid-April. Covid-19 put an abrupt end to that in March 2020 and since then, meetings have been held through the medium of Zoom. Whilst this is not an ideal situation, it has allowed the club to continue to function and the weekly sessions in front of the computer screen were something to look forward to in the dark days of lockdown. One advantage of having to use Zoom was that speakers from further afield could be engaged to talk to members.

One socially-distanced event was held during the summer recess when a few members met at Killard Point for some landscape and sunset photography. It was good to have some face-to-face interaction again. A couple of online competitions were also held during the summer, keeping members in touch.

The club committee has been hard at work planning a wide and varied programme for the incoming season which starts on Thursday 2 September. Unfortunately, it looks as if physical meetings are not going to be possible for the foreseeable future so club meetings will once again be held by Zoom.

New members are always welcome and if anyone with an interest in photography would like more details of joining the club, they should visit the club website. Instructions on how to logon to the Zoom meeting, along with the programme of events, can be found at -
