CLUB HISTORY

The club was founded more than fifty years ago long before video had been invented! The original members worked with tapes and slides, amateur 8 mm standard and super 8 film, but as video became available in the mid 80's members slowly began to transfer to the new medium. Now several members are working with High Definition and the club upgraded the projector system to be able to screen films in HD.

The person elected club Chair, ideally holds their title for 3 years, and  between 1953 and 2012, 20 Chairmen have been appointed to front the club. We are delighted that for the first time in the club history, a female Chairperson has been appointed in 2013. Karen Cripps heads the committee which has additional female members.
