We. myself and my SO that is, finally did it … we went and joined the Newport Photography Club as we wanted to learn from others. My father had been treasurer of the club many many years before. Originally we took our eldest daughter along but she really did not take to the group – she was the youngest there by miles and there did not seem to be any concerted efforts underway to bring a younger crowd in.
The group were very welcoming and friendly. We even attended a Christmas meal.
