The Quiz Night looks like becoming an annual event, if this weeks evening is anything to go by!

Val Ellis, a long time member of Cheadle and Gatley Film Makers, passed away on 3rd January 2018.
Val was a tremendous asset to the club, and her huge knowledge of the amateur film-making world was invaluable in her recent role as Programme Secretary.
Val was a leading light in the IAC, and had held the position of President, Chairman, Council Member and Librarian at various times in the past. She was also deeply involved in BIAFF, both as an organiser and a judge.
She will be sadly missed by all her friends and family.
Our guest this week was Mike Berry, former band member and musician.
After quitting the road, Mike turned his hand to producing corporate videos, and covering local news and events in and around the Lancashire area. He set up his own consultancy firm, "Everyonemedia", and has successfully migrated parts of his business to the YouTube platform.
Mike explained how it's possible to make money on YouTube, and the content which appeals to your chosen audience. A fascinating look at a world we've all heard of, but few fully understand!
