Local Society: Stockport

'A friendly amateur photographic society which meets weekly on Wednesday evenings from 7:30pm to 10:00pm from September to June for a varied programme of talks, competitions and demonstrations. We welcome photographers of all abilities from early beginners to the experienced. Our members' interests range through print and projected images, mono, colour and creative.'

'The aims of the Cheshire Beekeepers’ Association are to promote and further the craft of bee keeping. We do this through meetings, apiary events and educational courses ... We organise a full programme of indoor and outdoor meetings throughout the year.'

'Founded in 1969 to advance the study of family history and genealogy ... All our officers and officials are unpaid volunteers, helping in their spare time.'

'Stockport Photographic Society is composed of (mostly amateur) photographers with different interests and levels of experience. Although the club was founded in 1890, we're most definitely grounded in the 21st century! Our meetings programme includes a mix of presentations, workshops, image surgeries, photoshoots, and competitions (between members, and against other clubs) ... New members are welcome, however (in-)experienced in photography. Ages range from teenage (under-18s accompanied by a guardian) to retirees, men and women. A fancy camera is not a requirement — we use anything that takes photos.'
