Nikon Owner Midlands Group Meeting Saturday evening, July 3rd, 2010

Nikon Owner subscribers are invited to the re-launch of the Nikon Owner Midlands Group with Nikon Owner subscribers Rachel and Phil Hibberd at 7.30 p.m., on Saturday evening, July 3rd. The venue that has been chosen for this initial meeting is the Malvern Hills Hotel, Jubilee Drive, Wynds Point, Great Malvern, WR13 6DW.

The Malvern Hills Hotel

The Malvern Hills Hotel is high on the western slopes of the Malverns in the heart of an area of outstanding natural beauty and is just a stone’s throw from the Iron Age hill fort, British Camp. The building itself was originally constructed in the 17th century, and is a major landmark with a breathtaking panoramic vista from 1,115 feet above sea level, which still remains just as spectacular in the 21st century as when it was first constructed. Malvern has a rich cultural heritage of forts, castles and priories within a landscape of ancient woodland, rolling pastures and wild, open commons. The area is also home to a diversity of locally and nationally important wildlife.

We hope that this initial meeting will act as a springboard for useful photographic discussion, further meetings (perhaps an itinerant schedule of venues might be worked out within the broad Midlands area to make it easier for everyone to attend), and a number of photo-outings. The meeting starts at 7.30 p.m., and you are invited to bring some samples of your photographic work and your Nikon kit if you would like to do so. Nikon Owner subscribers from all over the country are invited to attend, and indeed would be most welcome. Partners and family members are also included within the invitation. To reserve your place please email me, Gillian Greenwood, on with your full name, your mobile or daytime telephone number.

I would like to offer a very big thank you to Nellie and John Steadman for all their past hard work over the years organizing the Midlands Nikon Owner Group, and would like to welcome Rachel and Phil Hibberd who will be helping to organize future events for the Group. Rachel and Phil have been Nikon users for a number of years, and work as full-time professional photographers in addition to running a company called Photography Made Simple.

The meeting is complimentary for current Nikon Owner subscribers. If you aren’t already a member, you can subscribe online or feel free to email me at with your name, daytime landline and mobile telephone number if you are interested in enrolling in Nikon Owner or call me after 2.00 p.m. Monday to Friday on 020 7828 4925 or for International calls, telephone + 44 (0)20 7828 4925. The cost of an annual subscription to Nikon Owner is currently only £59.

The Malvern Hills Hotel is on the A449 by British Camp (the Iron Age fort also k now n as the Herefordshire Beacon) halfway between both Malvern and Ledbury. If approaching from the North, exit at M5 Junction 7, and pick up the A449 from Worcester through Malvern. Stay on this road right through Malvern, and as the road climbs over the top of the hills at British Camp, the hotel is immediately on your right-hand side. If arriving from the South or East, exit at M50 Junction 2, take the A417 west to Ledbury, then in Ledbury town centre turn right for Malvern, on the A449. As you go over the Hills, the hotel is on the left-hand side.

With kind regards,
