Next Club Outing – Sheffield Park and Garden – Sunday 8 November
On Sunday we will be visiting Sheffield Park Gardens. There are two choices of travel. Firstly by car. Lets meet at the entrance at 11:00 am. The other option is to either get the train to East Grinstead or drive to East Grinstead and then pick up the steam train on the Bluebell Railway to Sheffield Park. Info on trains times and prices can be found on bluebell-railway.com. As some may be planning to take the train and will arrive later than 11:00am I suggest we all meet up at the tearoom for lunch/coffee at 1:00 pm. If you would like to come please put your name and mobile number on the list on the notice board at the Club. Alternatively you can e-mail me if you are planning to go.

This market usually sets up shop stateside, but lucky for us it’s made a trip across the pond.

DIY workshops, installations and activities take place so you can really make a day of it. Find a full lists of stallholders on the Renegade Craft Fair site.
World Press Photo Exhibition, Royal Festival Hall, South Bank until Sunday 29 November
Celebrating powerful, moving and sometimes disturbing photojournalism, the annual World Press Photo competition draws entries from all over the world. This year 5,963 photographers representing more than 130 different nationalities submitted not far short of 100,000 images. The resulting exhibition of 140 winning and shortlisted shots is shown in 45 countries, with the London leg of the tour taking place at the Royal Festival Hall. The submissions cover a kaleidoscopic subject matter; the often haunting images cover everything from homophobia in Russia to the Ebola crisis. The focus and scope of this free show – from the political to the personal – makes it an essential snapshot of the moment we live in.
