Photography group to hold exhibition

by Tom Martin (August 2022)

AN exhibition of photography from Crosby Camera Club will open to the public at Mencap Cottage House on Mariners Road, Crosby at the end of this month.

The prints, which will be on display around the house, represent a cross-section of recent work created by the camera club’s members, with a variety of subjects depicted.

The exhibition will open on Saturday, August 27 and run for just over a month, closing on Friday, September 30.

Members of the public can visit this exhibition of work from local photographers, free of charge, between 9am until 4.30pm while the exhibition runs. The exhibition is not open on Mondays or Tuesdays.

Newly-elected president of Crosby Camera Club, June Poston, said: “I do hope as many people as possible will visit our photo exhibition and help support both our club and Mencap Liverpool & Sefton.

“Mounted prints on display will be on sale at a very reasonable price, with 50% of each sale donated to Mencap Cottage House.

“While you’re visiting you can also grab refreshments from the venue’s new coffee shop with delicious cakes, scones, and hot and cold drinks available.”

The exhibition opens just 11 days before the start of a new season for Crosby Camera Club, with new members very welcome to join.

The club is returning to its regular meeting place at Crosby Library in Waterloo, opposite the Plaza Cinema.

On Wednesday, September 7, the new season will open with President's Night, which will feature a welcome to both new and returning members, an introduction to the club and an evening of ‘Image Critique with a Difference’.

June Poston, President of Crosby Camera Club, explained: “September is an exciting time for us with the start of a new club season, and we can’t wait to return to our regular venue of Crosby Library.

“I know that many people took up or reignited a passion for photography during the past few years, and we would love to see enthusiastic new members joining us on September 7th for the first meeting of our new season.

“We are a long established and welcoming photography club, always pleased to see new faces. Our club includes a mix of experienced and beginner photographers. You don’t even have to have a camera to join us!

“An interest in photography is all you really need. Many of our members start out using their phone cameras and take it from there. We really would love to see you on the 7th.”

Founded in 1950, Crosby Camera Club has been part of the local community for over 70 years.

Meetings are held every Wednesday, from 8-10pm, from the first Wednesday of September to the last of April, at Crosby Central Library's Small Lecture Room (where election polling takes place), on Crosby Road North, Waterloo, L22 0LQ.
