Peebles Camera Club- Eclipsed in the USA @ Community Centre
Jan 16 @ 7:30 pm

For our first meeting of the New Year we have our very own Brian Henry to take us on a trip through some National Parks in the US of A, on the way to the Dark Sky area of Utah where he observed the Total Eclipse of the Sun in 2017.  Brian will also share some tips on how he processed his images.

This is also the deadline for sending in your entries for the second competition on the topic “Colours of Autumn”.

Come and join us for a friendly chat, a cup of tea and some amazing images.  All are welcome.

TweedGreen
Jan 18 all-day

On Saturday 18th January, there’s the opportunity to contribute to a plastic waste sculpture being built by the local Tweeddale Youth Action group Craft Punks outside the Eastgate. During the week of 11th to 18th January, save all the unnecessary plastic wrapping in your shopping and bring it along between 10 and 11 on the 18th. Your plastic waste could be part of Peebles’ first community waste plastic sculpture!

Photos of the sculpture will be in the press and at our stall at the Eastgate wild film festival on the 25th-27th January.

Tweeddale Unwrapped: On Thursday 31st January in the Eastgate, a panel will discuss recycling and how we can improve it. Are you confused about what you can recycle? Dominic Hodgkiss from SBC is going to tell us, and Miriam Adcock from Zero Waste Scotland and Kathleen Vaughn from Changeworks will address what’s happening nationally. There will be lots of time for discussion so come along with your questions…… and examples of your confusing plastic wrappings!

Looking forward to seeing you at one or all of our events!
