The PAGB Group meets on Monday 6th June at 7.00pm in the small hall in the Tangmere Village Centre. Please come early to help to set up as we assess both prints and PDIs so there is much setting up to do.
At this meeting we will look at both Prints and PDIs with a view to assessing their suitability for Salon submissions and/or inclusion in a prospective panel for a PAGB distinction.
