We suggest meeting at the Bandstand down by the River Dee at 2.30 on Saturday 28th July.  We will walk along the walls until we reach the locks on the canal as it goes under the Railway Bridge.  We can then retrace our steps or continue round the racecourse and back to the Groves. It will be possible for people to drop out whenever they have had enough, and I am sure we will find it possible to obtain refreshments!

Please contact Jane jane1smyth@hotmail.co.uk to confirm your attendance.

This is a Steam Punk event where there will a lot more going on than during the winter months! There will be people dressed in Steam Punk clothing. There will be eclectic market stalls, exhibitions, talks and shows celebrating all things Steam Punk.

There is also an evening concert which members will be able to attend but will have to purchase their own ticket via the website (link above).Although we will have to enter together at the same time again, I have talked the groups organiser into allowing us individual tickets so that we can leave and return later if anyone wished to visit nearby Iron Bridge for example and return to the event later in the day.  The day time event finishes at 8pm and the evening concert is from 7pm to 11pm.

I need a minimum of 15 people to secure these prices!

email pammy sheldon to confirm your attendance. She  will be collecting money in The Butchers Arm each Monday. (except bank holiday).


Saturday 4th August 2018 - Llangollen 1960's Vintage Weekend. This will include a trip on the train and many people in costume.


Sunday 12th August - Ellesmere Port Boat Museum Horses at Work event. Horses, boats and people in costume will be available to photograph. Bonus is your ticket will allow you visit anytime for a year!


All of our summer walks and trips are open to club members and their friends and family.  Remember that in the new club season there will be a competition for images taken on club outings and judged by the members.  We will also be meeting each Monday (except Bank Holidays) at The Butchers Arms, Nercwys.
