Our schedule of monthly members’ meetings:-
The May meeting features James Ellson on the topic of Cops and Notebooks.
Starting in London as a policeman and then working out of Cheadle Hulme Police station before some time spent in Moss Side and then becoming a Detective Inspector. Now an author and managing a small holding in the Peak District.
The June meeting will include an illustrated talk on Lord Horatio Nelson: Art and Artefacts given by Dr James Taylor.
Lord Horatio Nelson may have been short in stature, but he was tall in deeds and his death on the deck of his flagship HMS Victory ensured his enduring popularity. This charismatic and contradictory character is examined through paintings, drawings and prints, and a small number of period artefacts.
The meeting in July will feature Wildlife Photography with Stephen Powles,
Country walks can be greatly enhanced if one has a knowledge of the signs left by animals and where to look for them. This talk will illustrate numerous examples, some common and some more unusual and some that you are likely to pass by without ever having given them much thought. The use of field craft, camera traps and CCTV monitoring will also be explored.
The Technology for Everyone group events in the near future are:-
