The Rosebowl Final

Amersham PS are through to the Rosebowl final.

The format of the final has changed and it is now called The Big Day. It will be held on Sunday the 19th April in the Drake Hall from 3pm until 7pm £5 entry.

The first part of the afternoon will be a talk by the very talented Wildlife Photographer Andy Sands. Andy belongs to XRR and has some stunning images of insects and birds amongst other things. It will be followed by the Rosebowl Competition comprising of 12 clubs each submitting 6 images. Amersham won this last year so we will keep our fingers crossed.

Outing – Butterflies at Wisley – Friday 6th March

butterflyTime to dust off those macro lens and head to the glasshouse at Wisley to catch some butterflies. The glasshouse opens at 10.00am and no doubt there will be plenty to see in the gardens too. Make your own way there or contact Sandra (details in your members list or email Outings from the contacts page) if you need a lift – or indeed if you have room in your car.

If anyone feels able and willing to organise and run an outing please let Sandra know.
