There will be no meetings June, July or August.

All meetings take place in the small hall in the Tangmere Village Centre.

The meetings start promptly at 7.00pm but we ask that group members arrive at 6.45 to help set up the hall. Because we assess both prints and PDIs there is much setting up to do.

I’m delighted to announce that our resident advisor at the PAGB Group, Janey Devine, has been elected a member of The Arena Group of Photographers, one of the UK’s most prestigious, invitation only Photography Groups. This is an indication of the high esteem in which Janey’s photography is held, not only in our area but also throughout the UK.

Congratulations to Peter Rocchiccioli who had an image accepted at the The London Salon of Photography. This is Peter’s second time having an acceptance at this salon, where only a very tiny proportion of the submitted images are accepted for exhibition.
