Photoggs is back

There used to be a group called Photoggs where UCC members could meet, drink, eat, discuss and learn different aspects of photography in a social setting.   Obviously Covid pout paid to all that but now Photoggs is back!!  This time round we will be meeting in a different venue which will provide more space and be more central to where members mostly live (between Crowborough and Uckfield)
 
Where: The Garden Room, The Crow & Gate, Uckfield Road, Crowborough, East Sussex. TN6 3TA.
 
When: Tuesday 16th November 2021 at 7.30pm.
 
What is Photoggs? Where a group of UCC members meet, drink, eat, discuss and learn different aspects of photography in a social setting.
 
There will be no limit to the numbers that attend. One ask is that chairs taken outside ‘The Garden Room’ are returned to the tables they were taken from.
 
The evening: 7.30 – 8.15 – Greet one another and chat about everything and anything. 8.15 – 9.05 – Discuss a pre-set topic. 9.05 – 9.15 – Plan the next meetings topic.
 
Like the Black Boys, the area will be reserved for us free of charge, although I’ve been asked by the management we buy food, drinks and snacks from the bar. It could be one soft drink, a tea or something stronger. I don’t think that will be too arduous for some.
 
You must order and pay at the bar and mention you’re in the Garden Room if it’s a tea or coffee.
 
Some of you have waited a long time for the return of Photoggs. Let us hope we can continue with it without any more Covid restrictions.
