Boxing Day shoot

We are holding our traditional Boxing Day shoot on 26th December (Boxing day!!). Get out of the armchair, put down the mince pies and get some fresh air! Be at site by 0945 for a briefing and kick off at 10.00. Something a little bit different this year but still an informal pairs shoot. We hope to be finished by 12.30 when you can then resume attacking the mince pies and chocolate.
