We have updated the Gallery(see top menu) where we can display photos from a variety of visits/activities.
We found some in the archives of when we celebrated our 20th anniversary (next year it is the 30th !) The archives contain pictures going right back to the early days – some of them are in black and white! Some current members are shown in their younger days. If you can help us identify the groups please let us have details.
If you have photos of your group’s activities please let us have them so that they can feature in the new gallery
