Caston Camera Club staged its first exhibition over Easter weekend in the Caston Village Hall. It was not intended not to be an exhibition of pure excellence but more an exhibition of the work carried out by its members who had been asked to exhibit pictures which in their view were liked by them. In other words, if you like it then please display it. As a result over 200 pictures were displayed, many framed and over 300 people walked through the door over the two days.
Many pictures were purchased and the club hopes the purchasers will enjoy their photos for many years to come. Additionally, there was a digital display on a large TV screen on the stage of the hall where another 200 images at least revolved in a continuous loop while visitors enjoyed a cup of tea and home made cake, and elsewhere a Tombola was completely sold out of its 170 prizes.
The club's committee members were quite overwhelmed by the number of complimentary remarks made by the visitors some of whom spent as much as two hours at the hall looking at images and enjoying refreshments and chatting about the club itself and how it was formed. A number of new members joined there and then paying their full membership fee on the day.
Overall a great success and an event that will surely be repeated at some future date.
