OUR MEETUP next Wednesday 4 May is at the small ‘Bluebells Wood’ (not its real name) near the Bridgehead Business Park, Hessle. This short walk, with a couple of surprises, currently hosts a beautiful carpet of bluebells. In the case of bad weather, then we will meet at the Haven Arms as normal.

We’ll meet outside the Nursery (Tiptoes), Woodlands Park, Bridgehead Business Park, Hessle, HU13 0FA at 7pm. The woodland can be found on whats3words at https://what3words.com/flip.croutons.stretch.

Bridlington Escape:

WE ARE HOSTING a photographic holiday in Bridlington and seeking early expressions of interest. Arriving in Bridlington on Friday 17 June and staying Friday night and Saturday night 18 June we will have a weekend of photographic visits and workshops. We hope to include a visit to the Wildlife Photographer of the Year Exhibition at Sewerby Hall with a tour of the house and grounds. Other visits to local photogenic activities and events will take place during the weekend too.

This will be an affordable trip hosted by photographers for photographers so will be immensely enjoyable and informative, with free time to enjoy the resort. Please email us straight away at viewfinders-ttl@gmx.co.uk to register an interest in the trip.

The Government’s roadmap out of lockdown and other advice and guidance is published at: https://www.gov.uk/government/publications/covid-19-response-spring-2021/covid-19-response-spring-2021-summary

To begin our journey back to active photography, we are holding a Lens Ball photography walk early evening on Thursday 1 April in the Hedon area. If you would like to attend then you need to book via viewfinders-ttl@gmx.co.uk and we’ll send further details.

Six places available only, but do get in touch anyway, and we can assess what demand there is for such activities.

Note: If you don’t have a Lens Ball, I have a spare that I can clean and sanitise for someone to use? Let me know, please. – Ray Duffill.
