Subject: Attempted Fraud

Hi folks,
Please see the message from Paul Stone, Horndean Camera Club, below.
Thanks,
Sue Teagle
Secretary, SCPF

Hello Sue,
Could you please circulate this email to all camera clubs in the SCPF area.
 
PLEASE BE AWARE
 
A fraudster has obtained names & email addresses of our club chairman & club secretary & has sent an email in the name of the chairman using a slightly altered club chairman email address to the club secretary email  address using both of our names as stated on the club website. 
The email from the chairman is asking me, the secretary, to pay an outstanding invoice for unspecified goods. I am 99% sure that the fraudster has got the details of myself & the chairman from our website as they are the only contact details stated on our website. 
 
Should any other club have a similiar attempt made to demand that an invoice be paid by your club for unspecified goods, please notify me at pjs28jack@googlemail.com & I will co-ordinate the details to be past on to the police fraud section. 
 
Thank you.  
 

Regards
Paul Stone
Horndean Camera Club

Awards for Ann and Sheila

We were delighted to see Ann McDonald and Sheila Tester both receive awards at the Club meeting on Thursday 21st February – and to have Peter Rocchiccioli present them in his role as President of the Southern Counties Photographic Federation. A very ‘well done’ to both!

Sheila Tester, receiving the SCPF Roll of Honour, by the Federation president Peter Rocchiccioli. A distinction which she very well deserved for the work she has put into Chichester Camera Club over ten years, and before that was a member of Marwell Photographic Group. She has served on Chichester’s  Management Committee many times, currently as Southern Counties Federation Representative,  and is also an active member of the Selection Committee. Sheila is also of course absolutely vital is the success of our Annual and North Mundham Exhibitions where she is our catering supremo. A very well deserved award to Sheila for all her contributions to club photography.

Ann McDonald won the best portrait individual award at the PAGB GB cup for the open projected images for her Portrait of a Lady, and is shown here receiving the award from by the SCPF President Peter Rocchiccioli. This is a great achievement by Ann as there were only eleven awards given nationally and this was also the only one within the SCPF. Many congratulations to Ann for this splendid recognition.
