What's New

A Trophy!
We're glowing with success after our recent entry in the Oldham Monochrome Print Competition made us victorious. We pipped Rochdale and District CC to the top spot by two points, with only five points separating the first four places. We're not sure how long it is since we last won an external competition - but it's longer than any of us can remember! Congratulations to all those who took part.
