Members of the Society welcomed local MP, Cat Smith, to our summer exhibition in the St Nic’s centre on Saturday, August 27.
After spending over an hour with members viewing and discussing the images Cat selected her 3 favourites. Since her visit Cat has promoted the society on her Facebook site.
The Society is pleased to announce that we have returned to Lancaster city centre with our summer exhibition.
This year we are situated within St. Nic’s shopping arcade on the corner opposite to Next.
We are open every Wednesday and Saturday until the 10th of September with a gallery of our members’ work. Come along and meet some of the photographers and see how the Society can help you with your own photography.
Hope to see you there!
