Members of the SKM Clicx Photography Group are pictured here during a nature-themed photography exhibition at Sutton Library.

The group, designed to give people with mental health difficulties an outlet, meets every week at Sutton Asda’s Community Room to share ideas and plan photography trips.

In May SKM Clicx designed a photography competition and were keen to launch another project, so opted for a show.

Group organiser Ranjit kandola said: “There is a group member who has learned a lot about photography and photoshop who helps run the sessions.

“They then go off and take their own shots and discuss them at the next meeting.”

Many of the photgraphs displayed were taken during trips out in Newstead and Rufford.

“Members of the public enjoyed the work on display and said the images were of a good quality,” said Ranjit.

If you have a particular skill you would like to share Nottinghamshire County Council runs a Time Bank group every Wednesday morning at Sutton Asda’s Community Room between 10.30am-12.30pm.

At each Time Bank session members can offer their skills in exchange for others and there is a list of the projects you can get involved in.
