Cost of membership

The annual subscription (membership fee) is £30 from the end of September for 12 months. Junior members pay £15. (Please note: this is still a ‘full’ membership).

Weekly fee: In addition to the annual membership fee, members pay £3 (juniors £1.50) per meeting attended. This is paid at the door or via PayPal. This weekly amount goes towards paying the room rental, expenses for lecturers/judges and refreshments.

Guests and prospective members are also asked to pay the weekly attendance fee (£3 for adults).

New members joining part way through the season pay a reduced “pro rata” annual subscription until the end of the current season. Our season starts at the end of September. A full subscription for the following year becomes due on/after the next AGM.

How to try us out/join the society

As a prospective member, we will welcome you to attend up to three meetings at the Blue Club (or via Zoom) on a Thursday night as a guest, paying just £3 per meeting. You can just drop in around 7 to 7:15pm and meet us.

On 21st March, we hosted the Adrian Deaville Trophy, in memory of a young man who tragically died in an air crash. The 4 clubs from Oldham and Rochdale get together every year to remember him. Christine is photographed here receiving the award for the winning club, Oldham Photographic Society, on behalf of the Society's members. The Judge was David Butler from Southport PS.
