I'm an old face (not literally!) but not been on here much recently. I'm trying to get more in with touch other local photographers. I've got the opportunity to use a canal boat (for 3hrs) on the Ashton Canal/ Peak Forest Canal (very pretty and interesting) and was wondering if anyone was interested in a meet. The canal boat is picked up from the Portland Museum in Ashton, another little find with a lovely restaurant attached perhaps for afterwards. All the Barge owners require is a small donation so a potentially fun afternoon or evening out. Here's a a virtual tour of the canal. If your interested I'd like to hear from you!

Hi Jude long time no see. Hope you're well.
Do you know date yet and approx time? In meets threads like this that usually helps people decide. Also we now have a members meetings section where it could be added and any one going can join the group.

Hi Jude, My daughter Charlotte (ChazB) and I would be very interested, we were both involved with the Simply Saddleworth book and would look forward to a local meet. I think you may have already sent her a message when we were away last week.

Just to update this meet - We're meeting at the Portland Museum, Ashton-Under-Lyne, Manchester, this Sunday 18th July for a 5pm trip ( meet 4.45pm).
The trip will be approximately a 3hr trip - along the Peak Forest Canal. The staff are offering refreshments although you are welcome to bring a picnic. I'll try to directly contact everyone that showed interest but if you get here first it'd be good to hear from you.

Places still available so any one interested welcome - even if it's just for the trip and not to take photographs - (A small donation to the volunteer crew would be appreciated.)

I'm intending to run a small competition - suitable for any ability.Grin

The barge trip has been rearranged to Saturday 16th 5pm-8pm. (Circumstances beyond my control - annoyingly!!).
I've Dm'd those that showed interest.
Places still available - let me know if your interested.

If this restricts the numbers then I'll see if it can be rearranged for later in the Autumn.
