The new President, Keith Tester, announced the results of the visitors’ votes at the first meeting of the season on 4th September.
The photographer of the winning image was Karen Horne with a portrait of “Tamyka”.
Karen will be presented with the Lee Filters Millennium Cup at the end of the season.
The winner of the draw for the picture the visitor would most like to take home was Sheila Buckingham who receives a copy of the image entitled “The Great Gatsby”. The photographer was Carol Johnson who receives a cheque for £20.
The winner of the panel with the most votes was Bobby Hamilton with “Africa in Infra-red”.
Bobby received a voucher for a cream tea for two at Northney Farm Barn tea room as did Nicola Holland, the winner of the draw from those who voted for his panel.
The club is looking forward to an active 2017/18 season. Forthcoming highlights include a visit from Guy Edwards on 4th December with “A professional approach to outdoor photography” . Guy is a well-known professional landscape, nature and travel photographer who makes a welcome return to the club.
