Already the people at Caston Camera Club are getting ready for their Photographic Exhibition. The banner has been flown out across the face of the village hall, signs are out as far away as the Junction of the Carbrook Road with the Watton/Norwich road as well as in the village itself, announcements have been made on Radio Norfolk as well as in the local Waylander, the Wayland News, the EDP and many other web sites as well.
It's been a mammoth task, getting in the entries, placing uniform name tags across the bottom corner of each to identify it and preparing a 20+ page catalogue of every picture. With over 200 exhibits there is great expectation as to the success of the exhibition but of course, with this being a first time staged, no-one really knows just how many visitors will come but it could be the most that have ever set foot inside the hall for one event.
The weather forecast is favourable though, too cloudy for the beach but dry and on Sunday the shops are closed so what better way than to spend some time than to take advantage of the free admission and see what the members of this club have been up to. This is not an exhibition of the elite though. Members were given one criterion for entry. They were asked to ask themselves for each image "Do you like it?" and if the answer is "Yes" then it qualifies for entry.
The club was formed just 30 months ago and already it is the second largest of the 17 clubs in Norfolk, many of which have been in existence for 30 years or more. Only a club in Norwich has more members.
The exhibition runs Saturday and Sunday 11th/12th April from 10am to 4pm each day.
