Club Centenary

In April 2012 our club - unbelievably - celebrated its centenary. We held a special celebration lunch at Morley college in honour of this momentous occasion with special guests.
We gathered together a lot of information about the club since its inception in 1912 using the Morley Magazines and other sources, and have brought some of this material together for a Centenary publication.
We also put together a special exhibition in honour of our centenary. For full details of these and other special events see the 'Centenary' page of this website.

Photographic Social

This year's event took place at Morley College on Friday 27th February. We're pleased to say that we had thirteen contributors. The standard was as usual very high, and a prize was awarded for the best picture, as chosen by one of the Morley college photographic tutors. A very nice selection of refreshments was served. We thank all contributors for their efforts.

Our last three Autumn Breaks took place at Sidmouth, Langollen, and St. Ives.
