Farnborough Camera Club got the 2015/16 season off to a flying start with a display of members’ work, a successful first meeting and plans for a talk. They pre-empted the season with a display of members’ work in Farnborough’s Princes Mead Shopping Centre on 15 August. The display attracted much attention from the public, and it’s hoped it will bring new blood into the club.

This was won by club president, Terry Redman. Throughout the season, Farnborough CC meets weekly on Thursdays and its busy programme is on its website.
