The club has received the following information about a photographic competition organised by Newhaven Heritage.
I am writing to you on behalf of Newhaven Heritage, a Scottish Registered Charity which is seeking to acquire the iconic Victoria School on Main Street, Newhaven, the oldest working school in Edinburgh, to become a Heritage Centre and community hub when it becomes vacant in 2020 once a new larger school is built on Western Harbour.
In order to publicise our campaign, we are holding a photographic competition which will also result in our producing a calendar to be sold for funds to swell our war chest to help cover the cost of essential professional fees – legal, architect, surveyor, etc.
Newhaven is a photogenic opportunity for the keen photographer and we are looking for the thirteen best landscape pictures to be included in the calendar that shows off the village in all its diversity to fullest advantage. We are contacting local camera clubs such as yours to draw attention to this free competition. At the end of the competition, we will be having a public display of the thirteen finalists, i.e. one image for each month plus a cover shot voted by public acclaim to be the best of show which will earn the talented photographer a voucher valued at £100 from WEX Photo Video.
Up to five LANDSCAPE format entries per person can be emailed to firstname.lastname@example.org before August 19, 2018.
I hope this may be of interest to you.

At the AGM we referred to the post made a year ago which clarified the club’s insurance coverage under SPF policy. To save members having to delve back through the archives, here is a link to that original message:
If you are arranging a group trip on behalf of the club (i.e. a trip where all club members are invited), please contact the SPF General Secretary or the SPF Treasurer, as described in the original message.
