Amateur photography club in Plymouth says extended parking hours could signal their last flash
AMATEUR photographers say parking charges could sound the death knell for their club.
Club Focus meets once a week at the Royal Corinthian Yacht Club on the Hoe to socialise and hear guest speakers.
Member Richard Thomas said they were scared the proposal to extend parking charges to 10pm could price out many people.
He believed the charges would add £218 in parking charges on top of the £126 it already costs to be a member and attend every meeting.

Mr Thomas said: "That kind of rise is going to destroy the club. It shows what damage these proposals are capable of doing. That rise is so out of budget for us.
"We have lobbied our councillors and the response has been pathetic. Half of them did not even know about the changes."
The former chair of the Plymouth Small Businesses group estimated that the Royal Corinthian on Madeira Road would lose more than £5,500 in annual revenue if Club Focus were forced to move elsewhere.
