Started in lockdown in June 2020, the Photo Group has been a great success. No need for a fancy camera, just imagination and observation.
Any member is welcomed to join in by joining our Photo WhatsApp Group or posting them on the Saddleworth WI Members Facebook Page. Many of the photos taken to date have been placed on the Gallery Page.
The photo themes for April are Easter and Blossoms.
We look forward to seeing your imaginative photos plus any other images that just raise your spirits.

For the first 26 days of June, every day, members took or posted a photo of something representing the letters of the alphabet in order – June 1st = A, June 2nd = B, June 3rd = C etc. This idea was borrowed from Weybridge WI (with their permission).
