London Salon Successes for PAGB group members.
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.

Stewards Rota 2017
I’m very encouraged by the number of volunteers who have put their names down for stewarding at the Annual Exhibition. I very much appreciate your support. The take up of kitchen slots is slower, so I am encouraging members who haven’t yet put their names down, to sign up for one or more of the kitchen slots. Money from the sale of teas, coffees and cakes will make a big contribution towards the cost the exhibition.
If you are able to spare some time to help, then please have a look at the latest rota for available stewarding and kitchen slots. My contact details are at the foot of the rota.
