70 years for Crayford Camera Club

Lights, camera and 70 years of action – is being celebrated by Crayford Camera Club this year.

Launched in 1948, the same year as the last London Olympics, formation of British Railways and sharing a birthday with the NHS, the club brings amateur photographers together to share their passion and knowledge.

An exhibition was held to mark the milestone at Lindy Lou’s Tearoom in Crayford on Sunday 16th September. Photography from across the membership was on display including landscape, animal, portrait and abstract images.
Captured by members who meet every Tuesday where they enjoy a varied programme including practical nights and theory too, they show a wide range of different styles, angles and skill.

Two visitors to the show were the Mayor of the London Borough of Bexley, Councillor Brian Bishop and his Mayoress, Councillor Christine Bishop.

Chairman Peter Frost, said: “It’s quite something to be a part of a club celebrating 70 years and the exhibition allowed us both to mark it and showcase our work.

“We’ve got some really talented photographers and welcome more to join us for both our weekly club nights and photography outings.”

The club is always looking for new members to join them and meets at Bexley Sports and Social Club, Calvert Drive, Dartford, DA2 7GA every Tuesday evening from 8pm – 10pm.

Come along for a few free visits before deciding if you’d like to join.
