Last Month’s Meeting
Wednesday 20th December:

Last month we had our December Christmas competition. Chosen Theme “Standing Out.”  We submitted around 30 images for comments and judgement by David Mendus. After he had selected his top three, members voted for their favourite. This was followed by our very enjoyable social followed.

The winning image was “Not your typical market trader” by Penny Westmoreland.

“Jenni” by Peter Beardow and “Roses of Remembrance” by Stephen Sitton were in second and third places.
