Barry Camera Club

The Club for Professionals, Enthusiasts and Novices – Specialists in Digital & Film


Welcome to Barry Camera Club

As you are aware, we are due to re-start our annual programme for 2020 / 2021.  Your Barry Camera Club (BCC) Committee has been meeting over the last few weeks to determine what our new programme is going to look like.

In light of the current restrictions relating to, use of the Clubhouse, Social Distancing, sanitisation and reviewing what some of the Speakers and Judges and other clubs within the WPF are doing, we have taken the decision to postpone going back to the Club on Fridays until after Christmas.

We have produced a programme of events that takes us from September to December 2020 at which point we will then review the situation and agree upon the programme for January onwards.

Please find attached the Calendar of Events for the next 4 months.  You will see that we are keeping the programme local.  We are running BCC Outings every alternate Sunday and personal Challenges on different days of the alternate weeks.

For the Challenges, these can be done in your own time or alternatively on the day allocated as some will be held at a specific location enabling us to meet whilst remaining socially distanced.

After the event, we would like to encourage you to post your images on the BCC Facebook page, this will help ensure we maintain a presence on Social Media by sharing our Clubs activities with those who can’t join us at the moment.

With regard to Membership Fees, the Committee have explored and reviewed where our outgoings can be minimised thereby enabling us to suspend Membership Fees until we return to the Clubhouse, hopefully in January 2021.  We will then look to pro rata the membership fees at that time.
