|Our club's 2011/2012 season drew to a close this week, though the Nature and Landscape groups will continue to meet over the summer. We also have a social event to look forward to at the end of the month. Members of the committee each gave us a brief report on this year's achievements, the highlights of which included our club winning 2nd place in DPIC, thus taking us through to the National PAGB Federation Digital Competition in July; our unprecedented success in interclub competitions; our sold-out event at the Arc Theatre last autumn and DCC becoming an associate member of Devizes Sports Club from this September. The leaders of our Nature, Landscape and Shutter Chatter groups reported continued interest from a high number of members.
Chairman Frank Collins summed up the very busy and challenging year and thanked all those who have contributed to the smooth running and success of the club. Frank said that members should be very proud that a club from a small market town will be competing on the national stage later in the year.
|After electing the new committee, members received their club certificates and trophies. Well done to Hilary Eagles, Chris Beard, Robert Harvey, Stephen McGrath, Joan Ryder Rathband, Kevin Ferris and everyone who received trophies. The new Ralph Pullen Memorial trophy presented by his wife Barbara, was a high point of the evening. Next season we can also look forward to the Silver Birches trophy, donated by Robert Harvey for the best landscape print. Have a great summer! LS
