Mount Fuji and surfers - Miko

2021 Programme 

We're still here with the same full programme as every year!

New members and interested guests always welcome. Interested in one of the lectures below? Email and join us in a meeting

talks, workshops, competitions, (maybe) walks and social evenings.

Digital competitions in the first half, in the hope that we can do print competitions later. The usual inter-club competitions are assumed, subject to the host club proceeding. Expect more changes than usual, so watch this space and our Facebook page.

Until further notice, meetings will be via Zoom on Tuesdays at 8pm,

(note there are some exceptions - check below).
