TPS Outing

From Geoff Adams, Members’ Rep:

TPS outing this Sunday 25th August, Japanese Gardens 2-4pm.

This is an opportunity to photograph a young lady dressed in steam punk costume with the gardens as a backdrop (Thanks Elsa, I assume Dad has mentioned this by now).

Heritage Photographic Awards

Volunteers are being sought to assist with the framing of the Heritage Photographic Awards.

This is a vital part of our local assistance and revenue raising efforts. It is important that we maintain our connection to this major photographic event, in our region.

Please email or reply to the post, if you can assist.

These changes are needed so that we can streamline our management, dealings with others and simplify our competition results.
