It’s the Camberley Car Show this Saturday

We’re away for this year’s Camberley Car Show, organised by Collectively Camberley. At last year’s show I produced a short video – see HERE, and for 2015 I interviewed some of the exhibitors. So sometimes can’t be helped, as you can’t go to every possible fun event.

The show has had good weather in the past, and will most likely again this Saturday. Click on image to link to the Car Show website.

Last day, today, to comment on Surrey County Council recycling centre proposals: UPDATE

Surrey County Council is proposing changes to the operation of its recycling centres. Their aim is to save money, hence these proposals, taken from the Surrey CC consultation webpage, are their proposals,

1. Ending the free daily allowance of non-household waste

2. Closing CRCs on two weekdays so all sites are open for five days a week

3. Ensuring CRCs in Camberley and Farnham are only used by Surrey residents

4. Permanent closure of four smaller CRCs – Bagshot, Cranleigh, Warlingham and Dorking

5. Restricting users of vans, trailers and pick-ups to larger CRCs only

Today is the last day that you can offer comment on the proposals, HERE.

UPDATE: I know I’ve left it late to comment. Just to say, I have responded giving my objections to some of the proposals.

A photo streetscape of Camberley High Street

The previous article on the Streetscapes photographic exhibition in Camberley, from 2nd-6th August, reminded me of the photos I took recently of Camberley High Street.

My photos were taken on the Saturday of the Camberley Carnival, where the High Street was devoid of vehicles, My photos my not be of the quality for an exhibition, but they are a record of the High Street in June this year.

An exhibition of photography in Camberley

I found out about an exhibition of photography in Camberley earlier this year, can’t recall how I learned about it. I subsequently visited the exhibition and reported on its recommended photography tips.

The exhibitions are organised by The Photographic Angle, which is a charity that holds free exhibitions across the country transforming otherwise empty spaces into temporary galleries. It promotes education of the public in the art and science of photography, by staging exhibitions, and by working with professional, student, and amateur photographers. [Click on image to enlarge and to link to the website]

The latest Photographic Angle exhibition in Camberley is of Streetscapes, from 2nd to 6th August at Building B, Watchmoor Park, Camberley, GU15 3YL. It’s open from 10.0 am to 3.00 pm. If these days are inconvenient, then the exhibition is on this week from 26th to 30th July at Greenwood House, London Road, Bracknell, RG12 2UB, again from 10.0 am to 3.0 pm.
