MEMBERS of Ponteland Photographic Society are the latest photography club to take up the opportunity to showcase their work in the Hexham Courant.

Dubbed the friendly camera club, members meet at Ponteland’s Merton Hall every Monday evening at 7.30pm between September and March to share interests and experience.

Visiting speakers are often invited to meetings and excursions are arranged during the summer months.

June Atkinson, the club’s publicity officer, said: “Many people are now moving into smart phone photography as well as digital photography.

“We endeavour to be inclusive and welcoming.”
