Ore and St Helen’s Camera Club

AS we are celebrating our 50th season it seemed appropriate to have the theme of Celebration as our theme for the Set Subject competition.

Former founding member, Phil Archer and his wife, Christine, who both gave stirling service to the club, deliberated and decided on the following winners.

In Digital Images Fireworks by Michael Mynett was given 3rd place; 2nd prize went to One of Jack’s Band by Paul Praeger while James Ball clinched 1st prize with Graduation Day. In Prints, Chinese Dragon - Michael Mynett came 2nd as Colin Dengate secured 3rd place with 65th wedding anniversary and 1st place with Celebration.

After the interval the end of season trophies were awarded to the following members in what has been a very successful season with record membership numbers.
