HEDON VIEWFINDERS July Programme:

Hedon Viewfinders is a Out & About photo club and we seek to provide opportunities for people to enjoy social photography in the company of other enthusiasts. For summer July 2018 we are organising a series of field trips (weather permitting) and invite you to join us in these photography opportunities.

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.

As always, opportunities to talk cameras, settings and all things ‘photography’ at our free, fun and friendly club outings.

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!
