Annual Exhibition 2019 - 31st August to the 15th September

This exhibition was again held at the Coach House, Littleborough, where a selection of Prints mounted on board and an AV of the PDI (Projected Digital Images) images were displayed as a slideshow on a TV.

The exhibition was kindly given an official opening by the Mayor of Rochdale, Councillor Billy Sheerin with his wife Lynn, the Lady Mayoress, on the morning of Saturday 31st August,

The Mayor was invited to say a few words before declaring the event open. It turned out that he had also been a keen amateur photographer, and gave a hint to how keen by declaring he used a Leica camera! Once the exhibition was declared open, the Mayor's party with Councillor Janet Emsley, reviewed the images on display and clearly enjoyed the quality and wide ranging subject matter.

Photographs of the opening ceremony and attendees were taken by two society members, Bob Srinivas and Mike Davis. These can be seen in the Gallery page for the event that can be accessedf from the "Galleries Menu" or directly from this page by CLICKING HERE!

Centenary Cup 17th October 2018

This year's chosen theme was Occupations and our own member, Mike Davis, very kindly judged the competition.  Pat Noon took first and third places with her well thought out images of The Boutique Owner and The Florists, and Mike Heaton came second with the aptly named The Butcher, the Baker and the Candlestick Maker!  Congratulations to both.

The meeting was well attended this year and following the formal reports and installation of the new committee, John Steel handed over to Ed Whitaker who was welcomed as our President for 2018/2019. It was only realised in the week of the AGM, that Ed just happens to be the 100th President of the society. The meeting was followed by the usual excellent buffet, to finish off the evening.
