Singleton Lake Outing

On Sunday 12 June a group of photographers from APS met up with a group from the Friends Of Singleton Lake who are a group concerned with the conservation, maintenance and improvement of the Lake and surrounding areas for the community.  The idea behind the meet-up was for an exchange of knowledge, APS members with their photographic experience and FOSL members with their knowledge of the local flora, fauna and wildlife.

Meeting at 10:00 the weather was a bit overcast but this wasn't going to deter anyone.  Split into small groups they went off covering different areas of the site.  Some went around the lake, others to the meadow, and some followed the River Stour.  After an hour the groups met up and then went out again but to different areas.  It was at this point that the weather started to get damp, alternating between drizzle and light showers, although this didn't dampen peoples spirit.

It was a very successful outing for both organisations, and hopefully the first of many.

Philip Hinton writes:

Hi, this is just a reminder that we are doing a joint outing with the Friends of Singleton Lake (see poster)  on Sunday 12th June, meeting at the car park at 10.00.am.  Apart from the lake there is a meadow and the river Stour with plenty of photo opportunities in the area hope to see there.
