One last appeal

We’ve had a reasonable response to the member survey, but would like more replies. If you’ve been meaning to do this, but haven’t got around to it, here’s the link again.

It will only take a few minutes of your time, but will be very helpful for our club.

Thank you.

Please help us improve our services to members

Dear TPS member,

The past couple of months have been challenging, but have also given us time to reflect on club activities and possible new directions.

As part of our planning process, we would like your input and suggestions. Please take a few minutes to complete the survey by clicking on the link below. The survey was constructed in conjunction with Graham Harris, former TPS Vice-President, who has professional expertise in this area.

No names are recorded, and individual survey results will remain confidential. Please click on the link below and thank you for your assistance.

Alice Black Award winner May 2020

To perpetuate the memory of our late member Alice Black, the club has introduced the ‘Alice Black Memorial Trophy’ to be contested each year on a perpetual basis.

At each month’s Aggregate Competition the judge will select an image from all those entered as the monthly Alice Black Image – they will use their own criteria to select the image regardless of the score given.  All images submitted in the Aggregate Competition have the potential to become a possible winner of the Trophy as there is no restriction on the grade of the entrant or the medium in which the image is presented.

This month’s winner is “Man vs beast” by Michael Jones.
