Graham Walls is Enrolled on the SCPF Roll of Honour

Congratulations to Graham Walls who has been enrolled on the Southern Counties Photographic Federation Roll of Honour.

Graham Walls accepting his award from Peter Rocchiccioli, President of the Southern Counties Photographic Federation

Graham is hugely deserving of this award, which is given in recognition of his long service to the Chichester Camera Club. He has been a stalwart of our club for over forty years. In addition to his several years of service as Print Competition Secretary he was also Chairman of our Selection Committee for many years. In this capacity he has been very supportive of our external competitions. He also served on the club committee for an extended period of time. Now in his late eighties, he continues to work for the club, each Thursday he still sets out all the chairs for the meeting before any of the other members have even arrived.

Congratulations Graham, the club is very proud of your achievment.
