Press photographs - Debbie AbrahamsPress photographs – Debbie Abrahams, Oldham East and Saddleworth MP, meeting with Saddleworth residents at a meeting organised by the Greenfield and Grasscroft Residents Association (GGRA) at the Satellite Club, Greenfield.

Alongside Andrew Taylor and Mike Rooke from GGRA Debbie Abrahams fielded a range of questions from members of the audience including several relating to the building of a new secondary school in Diggle.

I snatched a few shots whilst asking questions and following the debate. Chairing the Diggle Community Association and writing for Diggle News don’t always sit comfortably together.

Photography – Diggle Primary School Village Fete – Stuart Coleman Photography

Photography - Diggle Primary School Village FetePhotography at Diggle Primary School Village Fete – June 2013

Every year I go down and photograph the Diggle Primary School village fete. It’s a big event  and has, over the years, established itself on Diggle’s event calendar. Organised by volunteers, made up of parents, teachers, pupils and local residents, it raises over a thousand pounds plus for the school to use on pupil activities and resources. For the volunteers it’s a challenge and can get testing and frenetic but, no matter what happens e.g. bad weather, broken kit etc., they always pull it off.
