We’ve been unlucky with our Summer Programme with all our events having been affected by the ENGLAND football team doing pretty well. So we have POSTPONED our URBAN ART PHOTOWALK planned for Wed 11 July.  Keep an eye on Club news channels for changes to our other events too.

Our Club Room and the big screen at the Haven Arms is being used to screen the Football on the Wednesday night – so if club members want to meet up to watch the match with other fans – please do!

A photography-free night (or will it!?) of football joy – fingers crossed. Croatia V England – kick off at 7pm.

“Blue Thursday” TONIGHT to celebrate 70 years of the NHS

To mark the NHS’s 70th birthday, historic buildings and other high profile sites across Hull City Centre will be ‘lighting up’ blue on the evening of Thursday, 5 July. #NHS70 #LightUpBlue

SHORT NOTICE… but still worth a visit to Hull City Centre TONIGHT (Thursday 5 July) with our cameras.

Fancy a trip into Hull tonight for “BLUE THURSDAY”?

Whilst some might politically challenge the colour chosen to mark the NHS’s 70th birthday, buildings, historic monuments and other high profile sites across the country will be ‘lighting up’ blue on the evening of Thursday, 5 July.

NHS Hull Clinical Commissioning Group has joined forces with Hull City Council to bathe several of Hull’s recognisable monuments in blue light.

Includes:

  • Fountains in Queen Victoria Square
  • Maritime Museum
  • City Hall
  • Hull Minster
  • Solar Gate
  • Queen Victoria statue in Queen Victoria Square
  • Andrew Marvell statue
  • Ferens Art Gallery

This is a great opportunity for photography. People can join up with Hedon Viewfinders; meeting at Hull Pier (outside the Minerva pub) at 9:15pm to capture the sunset, and then have the stroll alongside the Marina to Queen Victoria Square for 9:45pm’ish.

People are encouraged to share their photos via social media using the hashtags: #NHS70 and #LightUpBlue.

Photos taken on Hedon Viewfinders visit to town in April.

TUESDAY 3 JULY we are meeting at EAST PARK which, with 130 acres of parkland, is Hull’s biggest park! It’s a Grade II listed park with up-to-date facilities, but also some historic treasures, lakes and gardens. We aim to meet in time for a prompt start at 7PM at the Holderness Road main gates.

The park is advertised as open until dusk but we’re going to give ourselves until 8:30pm. Think of it as a taster session; if you’ve not visited the park for some time – we’re sure you’ll become a regular visitor with your camera.

Hedon Viewfinders Photography Visit to Water’s Edge, Barton POSTPONED

HEDON Viewfinders are having a trip across the Humber Bridge to Waters’ Edge at Barton-upon-Humber on Wednesday 27 June 2018 (instead of our regular meeting). We will be meeting to visit the woodland, wetlands and wild flower meadows area at 7:30pm in the free car parking area at the Visitor Centre.

HEDON Viewfinders have POSTPONED the trip across the Humber Bridge to Waters’ Edge at Barton-upon-Humber. We will re-schedule the visit and let members know.

One of our members describes a visit to Waters’ Edge:

“Several ponds, all accessible by a network of interesting footpaths, small woods, wild flowers, birds, etc. A 15min walk along the Humber Bank from Waters’ Edge will take you to Far Ings Nature Reserve, with more ponds and several bird hides. Barton Haven with a small boat yard, moored boats and an old barge. The Humber Bridge which you can walk under and looks quite spectacular from underneath. To finish there is The Sloop Inn close by for a night cap.”

Directions: From the north (and please consider car-sharing and offering lifts to those from the club without transport) – take the first exit after the Humber Bridge (A15), signposted Barton upon Humber. Brown signs will direct you through the town to Waters’ Edge. The country park is at the very end of Maltkiln Road and there is a large free car park immediately to the left as you enter the park. If you are using a satnav, enter the postcode DN18 5JR into your device to navigate your way to Waters’ Edge.

See: Visiting Waters’ Edge on the North Lincolnshire Council website.

Note: All our outdoor photo trips are weather dependent. We apologise for any inconvenience caused by cancelling due to inclement weather.

Hedon Viewfinders is the town’s free, fun and friendly photography club whose events and activities are open to all (no membership required). All welcome!
