Peter had no hesitation in proclaiming Sylvia Blackmore as the Photographer of the Year with her image of "Summer Shower" and went on to say it was the best photograph he had seen this year.Congratulations Sylvia - what a wonderful first full season of competing you've had.

Many thanks to Peter for his valuable comments on his "Silver Jubilee" visit to the club (his first was in May 1984).

Also thanks to Graham (stepping in at the last moment) and Geoff for presenting all the images.

It was good to see Tony back for the first half after his recent accident. Hope you continue your recovery well, Tony.
