Dartford Outing

Philip Hinton writes:

Last Sunday around 11 members met at Georges place where he kindly provided us with afternoon tea and sandwiches to take with us.  Afterwards we then went on to the North side of the Dartford crossing and found parking near the church featured in the film "Four Weddings and A Funeral", it made an interesting subject as it is surrounded by large industrial buildings.  After a short stop we moved on to the river side walk where the flood walls have become a canvas for graffiti artists, with plenty of fascinating graffiti for at least a mile there was much of interest to photograph.  Walking on to get under the Queen Elizabeth bridge for sunset there were many more opportunities for photography.  The sunset did not disappoint us and the walk back did not take as long as we expected.  Many thanks to George for organizing the trip and his kind hospitality.

Kent Gliding Club Outing

On Saturday 25th July a dozen members visited Kent Gliding Club (http://www.kent-gliding-club.co.uk/), located on the outskirts of Challock.  Founded in 1930 the club is affiliated to the British Gliding Association and has 150 active pilots.  Members spent an enjoyable afternoon photographing various aircraft both on the ground and in the air, and we would like to thank the members of Kent Gliding Club for welcoming us and guiding us around the airfield.
