JUDGE CHANGE – NOVEMBER COMPETITION

The Photo Group’s November set subject competition “Icons” will be judged by Mary Furness instead of Terry Muller-Maher.

Terry has regrettably cancelled and quick thinking Ruth was back in touch with Mary who was our appointed Judge going back to April this year, but, if you do recall, did not make her judging debut.

However, all’s well that ends well and we now have the opportunity to finally meet Mary and look forward to welcoming her to our Club.
