    What's Happening    (updated 19/03/2020)

  Bradford Abbas Shield 2019:   A great 'People at Work' effort by our members; we may have ended up 4th= with Wincanton but that was just 2 points behind 2nd place Yeovil, and only 8 points behind the winners Sherborne Bradford Abbas. Congratulations to them. Congratulations as well to all whose photographs made up our entry - particularly Jeff Hutson for 'The Clockmender's Touch' and Steve Harrison for 'Engraver - a Study in Concentration' both prints scoring a maximum 20/20 from the judge. (Click on any image in the slideshow to see it enlarged).

  All Club Meetings Suspended:   In light of the Government guidance around non-essential contact, the club will cease to meet until further notice; please continue to watch this website for future updates as the coronavirus crisis unfolds. In the meantime we shall continue to run our Monthly Challenges with some new themes for May and June capable of being tackled with some photography at home. See the revised schedule at the bottom of this page and on the 'Challenges' page.

    South Petherton Calendar 2020

The SPPS South Petherton Calendar has become something of an institution over the years, and very well supported by sales it is too. Many thanks to the photographers who provided images this year of South Petherton and the TA13 area around: Richard Bickerstaff, Steve Cooper, Steve Harrison, James McInnes, Richard Martin, Liz Randall and Jan Stanton - and to the editor, James McInnes. In case of doubt about what exactly the TA13 area is, click here for a map.

2021 Calendar We are always looking for fresh images to include in the next edition of the calendar. As you take them throughout the year, please send your S.Petherton/TA13 images for collation and possible selection to .

    Monthly Photo Challenges

Each month the club members are set a photo challenge to produce digital images on a set topic. The images are then reviewed at a subsequent club night and voted on to select the winner (who gets a round of applause and our heartfelt admiration).
