Photos – Favourites and Principles, Sept 2016

At the September meeting of the Camera Club, David Harris gave a selection of his favourite photos, of course including his Black and White pictures. The subjects covered ranged from People , doing their own thing-watching trains and the Queen!  through Insects (macro) and dogs to Sport- Cycling and Burghley and Landscape.  The latter covered dramatic scenes in very rough weather, from Northumberland to Cornwall and the Balearics.  He looks forward to really bad weather on holidays!

Very apparent in these pictures were David’s use of strong lines and shapes. He has a very good eye for contrasting  large and small shapes, with dramatic positioning!

The next meeting of the Camera club is on November 14th, when we have a speaker new to the club.  Nigel Spencer is a professional photographer and has travelled most of the world and gives talks all over the country.  He will show  us “An Evening of Wildlife” 

Do have an  introduction by visiting his website      www.nigelspencer.co.uk  Well worth a visit!

Carpet Bowls Club AGM 2016

It was decided at the recent AGM to have a celebration day to commemorate the start of the Club which was soon after the opening of the Community Centre

The day was the 3 September. In the afternoon the Drawn Pairs took place. This when all attending put their names into a hat and drew out a partner. This makes very interesting pairing with champion players partnering novices. It is also very tiring! However the pair who came first were Lynda and Jack and were awarded the cup, next came Paul and Dot, then Jason and Martin. Good for them and now it was time to eat..

The buffet supper was enjoyed by all at 7 pm Players and wives were delighted with chicken and salmon etc and all sorts of salad dishes followed by fantastic deserts. Seconds were obligatory. When coffee was being served Paul gave a short history of the club and paid tribute to Jason for his enthusiasm and drive in starting the club and making it grow . Tim then presented a silver engraved plate to Jason. Jason had recently resigned from the chair having held it for 19 years.

Anyone interested in having a go at bowls there is a practice evening on Mondays in the hall 7 to 9. Come along . Tea and biscuits for a small fee. The game keeps you and you toes and is great fun.

24/8/16 – Damage/ Attempt theft – Church street, North Luffenham

31/8/16 – Theft of trailer – Leicester road, Belton

I want to make you aware that there has been a ‘spike’ in Church leads thefts from roofs last month in Rutland & Leicestershire. These include the following –

03/08/16 – St Marys church, Manton, Rutland

04/08/16 –  St Edmunds Church, Egleton, Rutland

06/08/16 – St Marys Church, Wyfordby, Nr Melton Mowbray

08/08/16 –  All saints church, Lubenham, Leicestershire

14/08/16 – St Marys Church, Lutterworth

We are carrying out an operation and paying special attention to Rutland Churches, carrying out high visibility patrols & liaising with bordering forces because of this. There is good news in that we have recently arrested 3 Eastern European males on suspicion of lead theft from our 2 Rutland Churches and they are currently on police bail, whilst we are carrying out further enquires.

Our other Problem solving Plans are –

1 – Conducting a burglary campaign in the whole of Rutland – targeting offenders & liaising with neighbouring forces. The last Burglary dwelling on the south beat was on 14th July.

2 – Targeting speeding motorists in Empingham. I have liaised with Rutland County Council & traffic calming measures have now been introduced either side of the village to help reduce speed. Speed enforcement has taken place & since May, 15 Traffic Offence Reports & 74 cautions have been issued. I have also began to start a new community speed watch in the village.

Hot stuff wanted! – any surplus Chillies?

Many thanks to the generous Allotmenters and their free veg box on Pinfold Lane – a wonderful enterprise!

In a similar spirit I’m wondering if anyone has any surplus hot Chilli peppers that I could use to make into Chilli jam – those on sale in supermarkets have been disappointingly mild.

Please contact Lin Burrows who would be happy to collect : linda.burrows@live.co.uk
