Zoom and a new website

by | 6 March 2021 | Gainsborough, Hobbies

The past year has brought many challenges; challenges that organisations such as Axholme Camera Club have worked hard to overcome. From the outset, the club’s committee realised the importance of retaining members’ interest and enthusiasm and the need to provide a focus to offset the confines of COVID-19.
Holding true to its commitment to inspire, challenge and support, members of the club have utilised Zoom to maintain a full programme of events – which has brought the benefit of hearing presentations from photographers across the UK and from France and Australia. It’s fair to say that from the outset members, judges and speakers had little, if any, experience of Zoom, but those with the time and dedication took it upon themselves to find a way forward. Of course, there were some minor technical hiccups initially, but now everything seems to be running smoothly.
The club has also committed to supporting the mental wellbeing of those in the community by providing opportunities to progress their photography skills and raise their self-esteem. Consequently, Axholme Camera Club has been shortlisted as a Lincolnshire Co-op Community Champion for spring 2021. If you are a member of Lincs Co-op and would like to help the club progress with this aim, please take the time to vote for them.
One other significant development has been the establishment of a new website. Two months of work by a dedicated team of four has created a website accessible to club members and the general public. Those who want to view the website and learn more about the club’s activities can do so by Googling ‘Axholme Camera Club’.
