Crewe Photographic Society was established in 1947 (and is therefore celebrating its 60th birthday next year!). It is a friendly and helpful society open to all ages and abilities. They were awarded a Lottery Grant in 2003 which they've used to equip the club with a laptop, scanner and digital projector so that they could help their members and the community embrace the digital revolution while traditional film photography is also still very much alive and kicking. The society meets at 7.45pm every Thursday at Crewe Library from September to May. New members are always welcome and if you'd like to know more about Crewe Photographic Society please contact the Secretary Tom Seaton on 01270 569721 or visit the web site www.crewephotosoc.com(The website link that was here no longer works)
