We recently met for an extended time and visited Worsley. We explored the canal and the heritage and had a lovely lunch in the Barton Arms.
John Rylands Library is on Deansgate in Manchester. Their website is here: http://www.library.manchester.ac.uk/rylands/
For some of our group it was the first time they’d been and everyone thought it was beautiful and worth visiting again. A real jewel that we so often walk past but need to go in!

We wanted to learn a bit about sports photography so we went to a crunch University match between Salford and MMU on the David Lewis Playing Field. Salford won 3-0. We learnt why sports photographers have such good, expensive equipment. It isn’t easy!
Involved is a community project based in Broughton and headed up by Dave Fraser. One aspect of the work they are developing is a furniture project where they take rejected furniture and do it up. For this they are using old industrial premises on East Philip Street with the Biospheric Project based above them.
