It's our 30th Birthday!

Les Weatherley, Chairman and Founder member of the Ford Camera Club, which later became Daventry Photographic Society, met the current Chairman of Daventry Photographic Society at the Annual Photographic Exhibition in Daventry Library.
The Ford Camera Club was founded 30 years ago.

The Exhibition will be on at the Library until 26th October. So why not go to the Library to take a look.

Our current chairman said that we are still looking for more ‘Snap happy ‘photography enthusiasts to come and join us. You can come as a visitor for two weeks to our meetings at no cost or obligation to join us if you just want to find out more about what we do. We meet at Mayfield Park Sports Club , Daventry every Tuesday!

This is the article and photograph of original members from the
Daventry Express
of 6th October 1988.

Our club was formed on 22nd September that year and 11 people attended the inaugural meeting
