We regret that effective 15 March we have cancelled all remaining events for our 2019-20 season. This is as a result of the Coronavirus/ Covid-19 threat.
We hope to restart as planned in September for the 2020-21 season. The Committee wishes you all a safe and healthy few months.

Our congratulations go to Patrick Faleur for getting a photograph accepted in the Grosvenor Museum’s 13th Open Art Exhibition this summer. The image has also found a buyer, with a local resident the lucky new owner. Well done, Patrick.
We are sorry to report that Mike Reed died on Tuesday 16 July at the age of 87.
Mike had been a member of Chester Photographic Society since 1973 and had held many posts on the committee. He was a Hon. Vice President of the Society in recognition of his contribution over many years. He was an A.R.P.S. and a well-recognised Lecturer and Judge in the L&CPU. He represented C.P.S. on the L&CPU Committee for a few years and his contribution resulted in him being granted a life membership of the L&CPU.
Graham Latter, president, spoke on behalf of all members: “A great loss to the club and I have many memories of chats and advice from him over the years. My condolences to Eileen and their family.”
There will be a memorial service at Rowton Methodist Chapel at 11.30am on Tuesday 30th July followed by refreshments at Rowton Poplars Hotel.
