Review of our outing pictures.

Our group is of very mixed ability and knowledge. In the best spirit of the U3A we need to self-help as much as we can. Members should contact John about any subject they would like included in the programme. Those not understanding something or who have just taken their camera out of the box and need help should ask – we should be able to find a more knowledgeable member who will give some guidance on a one to one basis.

Contact John Kenny as above for more information if required

Please note that because of declining numbers its members agreed to discontinue the Digital Image Manipulation (DIM) Group.
