Plymstock Camera Club at the Plymstock Fair



Saturday September 1st saw Plymstock Camera Club committee and members setting up a fantastic print and rolling digital display of images at the annual Plymstock Fair which had not taken place last year.  Many visitors to the fair took time to view and discuss the images with members that were present.  The display looked great.  One ex-member who visited stated the standard had indeed gone up!




The above image shows a few of the visitors clearly very interested in what was on display. 


Watch out in the local South Hams Gazette as one of their contributing photographers took a press photo of a few of the memebers attending.
