PHOTOGRAPHERS in Felixstowe really clicked with the public this summer – with more than 500 people attending their exhibition.

It was the first time for many years that the Felixstowe Photographic Society had held a display of its work and it was thrilled at the success of the event.

Visitors to the three-day event held at Trinity Methodist Church were asked to vote on the best print in the show and 185 cast votes.

The club – which meets next at 7.30pm on Thursday at its new venue, the Senior Citizen's Day Centre, Orwell Road – recently presented Felixstowe Girl Guides with a cheque for £150 for their building for a new HQ.
