Folkestone Camera Club began its long history in the year of 1906, and although the club had short breaks during the two world wars, it has had meetings continually since 1945. The period of our present membership covers less than one year to some members who joined more than thirty years ago. Our members come from all walks of life with many and varied photographic interests.

Many of our members joined with little or no knowledge of the finer points of our hobby but they soon found that the friendly atmosphere encourages an excellent exchange of ideas, particularly with the more experienced members. New members are made to feel welcome and experience the thrill of sharing our photographic achievements.

In pursuit of photographic excellence, many members have formed lasting friendships and enjoy the club activities as much to meet their friends as the added pleasure of exchanging their latest photographic experiences and sharing our images.
