Wellington and District Camera Club is a well-established club with around 45 members. We meet on Wednesday evenings from 7:30 - 9:30pm in the upstairs lecture theatre in the New Science Block, Wellington School, from September to April.

At meetings we have in-house competitions, guest speakers from the photographic world, practical photography sessions, travelling exhibitions, talks from our own members and battles with local camera clubs. There are also events during the summer, including trips to places with photographic potential. We have meetings with other local camera clubs and participate in various events in and around our town.

While we take our photography seriously, we never forget that it should also be fun and we pride ourselves on our friendly and informal atmosphere. New members are always very welcome - just come along to any club night. Our members range from those who simply enjoy looking at photographs, to those thinking of buying a camera, to very experienced and well travelled photographers. And it doesn't matter what you use to take photos - anything from mobile phones to top range DSLRs is fine. Advice is freely given to all club members; we try to remember that even experts were beginners once and help is always available.

We are affiliated to the Western Counties Photographic Federation, (WCPF), the Photographic Alliance of Great Britain (PAGB) and to Wellington Arts Association, (W.A.A.).
