When a plan comes together - shooting the April magazine cover

The April magazine's front cover

As April's magazine arrives with readers, many will have noticed the cover is a montage consisting of two different photographs, joined together.

For this we owe a big thank you to photographer and friend of the Club magazine, Alisdair Cusick whose patience and skill was a massive help in getting this ambitious idea turned into a reality.

We'd initially come up with the plan for a split front cover having realised we didn't have a natural picture that illustrated the concept behind our main feature this month, an article about the two sides to a holiday in the Lake District.

Antarctic adventures

The Ondaatje Lecture Theatre at the RGS

As we sit here surrounded by snow, and the usual British chaos ensues outside, I’m reminded of events of about 12 months ago, when the magazine reported on the British Services Antarctic Expedition (BSAE).

We may think we have it bad here at the moment but spare a thought for these 24 brave ladies and gentlemen, who volunteered to visit the coldest place on the planet for two months (January and February) to commemorate our former Club President and national hero, Captain Robert Falcon Scott – or Scott of the Antarctic to give him his popularised nickname.

Last year, 2012, marked 100 years since Scott stood at the South Pole, somewhat deflated having realised that Norwegian Roald Amundsen had led the first team there just five weeks earlier.

A magazine makeover

The new-look Camping & Caravanning magazine

Well, it’s been a bit of a long time coming but the time has finally arrived for our new-look magazine to start hitting doormats around the country.

You may have already seen Camping & Caravanning’s updated, fresh new appearance, and it’s great to know that all our hard work and effort over the past six months or so has come to fruition.

We’ve enhanced the sections, moving one or two around and giving them a more modern feel. Our Take Off diary section has become Pitch & Go! and we’ve given Forum an updated identity to reflect the fact that we now receive communications from members in more ways than simply by post or email.
