CXPS are due to resume meetings at St Mary's Centre, Church Street, Pilsley, Derbyshire, S45 8EX on the 6th September 2021 but if Covid 19 restrictions are still in place, we will carry on the programme as On-Line Zoom Presentations where possible.

A primary requirement of returning to St. Mary's is the need for thorough cleaning of all facilities after each use. A key concern for your committee is who would be responsible for carrying out these activities and verifying compliance.

Consultations are ongoing with regard to resolving this issue.

Summer 2021, 10 Image Competition.

 During the summer break please take 5 photographs of any subject, but then produce 5 in colour and the same 5 in mono, 10 images in all 5 + 5.

Images may be tidied up (removal of obtrusive or offensive bits and pieces.)

All tools for improving an image may be used including NIK software etc for mono conversion.

The addition of components from other images is not allowed.

The summer break starts after the AGM which is on the 24th May 2021.

All images are to be taken between 24th May and 30th July 2021.

Send all your images to the Competition Secretary (Graham) to be received by the 31st July 2021.

Obituary Ken Agutter






"It is with great sadness that we have to announce the death, on Thursday 5 November 2020, of Ken Agutter, following a short illness. No further details are available at the time of writing but we believe his death was Covid-19 related. Our thoughts are with Ken's family at this sad time.

Ken was a long standing member of Clay Cross Photographic Society and his many friends from the Club and everyone who knew Ken will mourn his loss deeply.


Rest in peace, Ken. You will be sadly missed.
