New Attendance and Photo Walk.

Note that there is a new page on this site – information on using the institute. Covid has meant that our use is much restricted and totally different to what it used to be.

Jon or Paul need to be informed if you want to attend by Tuesday pm. A restricted number of people will be allowed in the building at one time. Members have to meet on the Institute Car Park by 9.55 for entry at 10 am. If you are late you will not be able to enter.

Please bring a laptop and pictures you wish to post-process. If you are having problems this is an ideal time to try to find answers.

Photo-walk Thursday 10 June.

Bridgenorth – Meeting on the new car park above the Severn Valley Railway Station at 11 o’clock, or if you find the walk too difficult then we will check the main station platform. Bridgenorth has a large number of interesting areas to visit and photograph. The number 9 bus from Wolverhampton drops off outside the station entrance.

Hope to see you there.
