I recently got asked why I joined Croydon Camera Club: the obvious answer is that I like taking photos, but that doesn’t tell the full story.
The truth is that I’ve liked taking photos since I was a child. I guess back then I liked the power it gave me; how when I had a camera in my hand, I could boss the adults around for the sake of the photo. I liked how people said I "took a good photo" and at family events my Nan would give me her camera to take photos for her.
In the beginning, I was using a film camera, so I learnt the hard way to keep fingers, hair and wrist strap out of the frame. But I was intimidated by more complicated SLR cameras; I didn’t feel I had the skill or the know-how to use them. However, with the introduction of digital cameras I could see any mistakes right away and retake the photo. Now I could take as many shots as I liked, well at least until either the card was full or the battery was dead!
I always thought photography was a solo hobby, until I came across the Croydon Camera Club website and decided to visit one evening. I joined up there and then! Why? Well, I guess the real reason is that I no longer wanted to take just "good photos". I wanted to stop using "auto mode" on my camera, to really learn about photography and how to let my creative side come through. Joining the club has done this. Seeing the images others are producing has given me the confidence to try taking different types of shots that I wouldn't have attempted before.
I now only use auto mode occasionally and as a result I've seen a vast improvement in my photography. I’m therefore now happy to call myself an amateur photographer, which I never would have before.
So if you want to take better photos or be with other like-minded people; or if like me, you're the person who's too busy taking photos at events to enjoy the action, maybe the "event" you're missing is Croydon Camera Club! Whatever the reason check out the club's website www.croydoncameraclub.org and come visit us one evening. I can promise we don’t bite; we do snap but we only snap photos!

Westfield recommits to Croydon with significant investment
Since being elected as Mayor of Croydon, one of my main priorities has been to progress plans for the regeneration of Croydon Town Centre, which was one of the most visible failures of the previous Croydon Labour Administration.
That's why I'm pleased to announce that Westfield has today restated its intention to regenerate the centre of Croydon, by making a significant investment in its future. Unibail-Rodamco-Westfield (URW) has acquired Hammerson’s 50 per cent stake in the Croydon Partnership, a 10 hectare parcel which includes the current Whitgift and Centrale shopping centres, high street retail frontage, office blocks and multi-storey car parks in the heart of Croydon.
In so doing, a number of logistical challenges have now become simplified, making it easier for the billion pound regeneration of Croydon to be restarted. This significant step sends a very clear signal to Croydon residents that URW remains committed and incredibly enthusiastic about the plans to regenerate the tired Whitgift Centre into a facility fit for the 21st Century. I now look forward to working with Unibail-Rodamco-Westfield as they develop a new masterplan for Croydon this year, which will inform a new, revised application for the town centre that will meet the future needs of our community. I have reconvened the Mayor’s Town Centre Advisory Board, which is working with key partners to drive forward the regeneration.
Since I was elected last May I have met regularly with Westfield and Hammerson to ensure that we get the redevelopment of our town centre back on track. This is a major step forward and I look forward to continue working with local partners to improve our town centre and restore pride in our borough.
With best wishes, Jason Perry
Mayor of Croydon
