'Its 5 branches cover Bath and Bristol and their surrounding districts and the local authority area of N. Somerset. This area was the extent of the old Avon County when it was created in the 1980s, mainly from the northern districts of Somerset. Since then the county boundaries have changed again and Avon County no longer exists, but the branches within ABKA carry on under the Avon banner, as an appropriate description of the catchment area.'

'We are a group of enthusiasts who meet two Thursdays a month at 7.45 (8 pm start) from Sept until May. The club was established over 60 years ago to allow members to indulge their hobby in a friendly and supportive environment, whether they are experienced photographers or complete beginners.' However the Link here now seems to have been taken over by another group - and I haven't been able to establish whether the Club itself is still in operation.
Meet 'the last Monday of every month, at 7.30 pm from September to June'.
