Weekly Newsletter 23rd November

Hi BPS members.

Despite the weather forecast being pretty poor a good sized group of members visited Bridgwater town centre in what turned out to be a dry but breezy evening. Some members spread out around the town while a few others had a go at obtaining some shots of light trails. I think this would make a good evening in the Autumn when the weather is better and sunset mid-evening.

Christmas meal

The price is £13.50 for two courses with a turkey and beef carvery provided we have 25 people attending but will be a little more if we can’t get the required numbers because we have to pay for 25 meals regardless.
