Time change. Photo Walk Part 2

Following not so nice weather forecasts, it has been decided to change the time and hopefully miss the bad weather.

Our next “Photo Walk” will take place at Bantock Park, Wolverhampton, WV3 9LQ

on the 29th of October at 2 o’clock.

We will meet in the car park.

It is likely that the Café will be open.

All Covid precautions will be observed. Ensure you have a mask available.

Hope to see you there. Any alterations will be published here and on the Facebook page.

Possible Site Problems.

Just wanted to give you a quick heads up that Facebook and Instagram embeds in WordPress will stop working on October 24th.

If you have ever embedded FB or IG content in your blog posts, then you need to implement the fix ASAP.

Because these features will stop working in 7 days from now.

Please help spread the word by forwarding this email to your friends and sharing the news in your network.

I received this a few minutes ago. I don’t think it will effect us, if you have a problem with the site let me know and I will sort it out (try to – must be positive).

What do you need? Well, a camera might be good and knowing our weather of late, a waterproof. Any changes will be noted on this page and the groups Facebook page.

Hope I can remember how to do this. It has been a long time since I posted anything on this site.

Place :- Bantock Park, Wolverhampton, WV3 9LQ

Meeting in the car park

House keeping :- The Café is open for takeaways but unfortunately the Toilets are closed.

Needed :- Macro equipment would be useful but not essential.

Hope to see you there.

Bryan Crook

I am sure that you will have all heard of Bryans passing.

A message from Jenny.

I now have the arrangements for Bryan’s funeral and although only family can attend (not even stand in the crem grounds) I just wanted to say it will be 10-30 on Friday 24th July at Bushbury. If anyone wants to make a donation can they please send me a cheque made out to “The Royal Wolverhampton Trust”, we shall send them to the Gastroenterology department where he attended for many years. Please send direct to 60 Cranmere Ave, Tettenhall, WV6 8TS. Please don’t feel under any obligation but this is the only way we can really contact anyone. His ashes will be scattered later in the summer and more people will be able to attend by then. Can you please let Jon George know and maybe Paul could email those not using FB. Many thanks, Jenny

Jon is going to send a donation from the group.

Mondays Zoom meeting.

Unfortunately, the meeting has to be cancelled. Jon has no internet but is trying to have it mended for the Wednesday meeting. If this does not happen, I will try to put a meeting on, watch your emails for meeting ID and password.

If this does not work then we will try for the Monday after.


Just a quick note about our meetings.

Jon is arranging a Zoom meeting at 11 o’clock in the morning every Wednesday.

Paul will send out an email with contact details. You will not necessarily get one each week. Until further notice the Meeting ID and Password will be the same for each meeting. It might be an idea to download and install Zoom, which might give you more options.

I am really looking forward to SEEING people rather than just hearing or reading.

Our private Facebook page is doing very well but it would be nice to have some more members. The name of the group is Compton G Camera Club which can be found by searching on Facebook. To publish or make comments you have to be a member and you have to request to join. At the moment I am visiting our page two or three times a day, so admission should be reasonably quick. Each week I am setting a subject on which members are invited to post their images. So far we I am, in the modern saying, blown away by the creativity and ability of our membership. I have seen some quite outstanding photos.
