As the formalities of the AGM on 12 April came to a close, it was possible to look back on the season. It saw strong membership with many new faces and an upsurge in female members plus a packed programme of events featuring not just home-grown talent but high quality external speakers.
Members thanked all those who had played a part in running the Club and the President, Larry James, announced that the Fairbrother Memorial Trophy for distinguished service was awarded to Peter Farmer.
The D J Slingsby Trophy went to Peter Wilson for the highest number of points achieved in digital competitions and Larry James gained the T L Haigh Trophy for the most points in print competitions. After trophies and certificates were presented, the evening was rounded off with Mike Barnes’ audio visual compilation of all the images that had won awards in the competitions.
The Club takes a break from evening meetings now until 13 September, but there is a full programme of outings starting on 3 May. The Club’s public Exhibition at Cliffe Castle Museum, Keighley, opens on 4 May and it includes a series of free public lectures on photography. There are more details here.
