Written by Jay Richards on 25/09/2020
Today marks the final day of Dawlish and Teignmouth camera club’s public exhibition, which for the first is being held online this year, due to the Coronavirus pandemic. This year as well as displaying the online public gallery, the club has had a whole host of speciality talks and presentations held online using a popular video conferencing platform, allowing the public to join in.
Previous years have seen the involvement and support of The Mayor of Dawlish – Councillor Alison Foden and The Mayor of Teignmouth – Councillor Robert Phipps. This years exhibition features an online auction for a signed, framed print by esteemed photographer Ken Holland, with proceeds going to charity ‘Action for children’. The gallery can be accessed online at www.dawlishteignmouthcameraclub.co.uk.
The club was formed on 3rd Jan 1979 and Tony Wilson (the only surviving founder member) still remains an active member to this day. Tony was made a life member for his achievements and commitment towards the club. The Club was originally called the ‘Dawlish Photographic Society’ and the name was changed to the ‘Dawlish and Teignmouth Camera Club’ in 1982. The club was then affiliated to the ‘Western Counties Photographic Federation’, which is part of the ‘Photographic Alliance of Great Britain’.
