  Photography Group
The group came into existence at the beginning of 2007 in response to a request for an exhibition of photographic work at the Worlington Arts Festival.  At the end of the Festival there was interest from those who had participated to carry on with regular meetings.  As a result a group was formed to continue to develop their photographic skills.  Early 2010 the group was awarded a National Lottery Grant for the purchase of equipment with which to teach image enhancement and manipulation, that project was completed in February 2011.  The group as a whole is continuing its development by collective photographic projects, exhibitions and competitions whilst utilising the National Lottery equipment.

To look at our photograph gallery and find out more about the activities of the group and how to join visit our Photography Group page on this website.
