Keen photographers in Wickham Market are celebrating 30 years of their monthly club meetings.

Wickham Market Photographic Club (WMPC) was launched in 1985 by enthusiasts Mary Morris and George Davey. They were soon joined by others including Don Marr, whose widow Pat is still a member, and Jill Temperton, whose husband, John, is the current chairman.

The club has seen changes in technology over the years, including the rise of digital photography, and work is now exhibited either in print or as projected images.

WMPC meets in the village hall on the first Friday of the month, with activities including competitions, speakers and practical evenings. There are trophies to be won, including the George Davey Shield, in memory of the co-founder.

Visitors are welcome and you do not have to be a village resident to become a member.
