Batley & District Camera Club

We are a long established club of around 40 members, meeting weekly between September and May. Our aim is to share our common love of photography in a friendly atmosphere where our more experienced members are always willing to share their knowledge and help develop beginners.

Wednesday Mornings 10am


From Dewsbury & District 3rd Age.

Crochet, embroidery and blockwork. Beginners are welcome, guidance and support will be given if they wish to learn a new craft. Most crafters share knowledge generously, and find that we all have different talents and learn from each other in an informal, social way during the meetings.
