This is just to say thank you very much to club members for my
nomination and certificate from SCPF for long service to the club.
I have to say this was an absolute surprise and shock, and of course
I am delighted to receive it. It was great to have it presented to
me at last night’s meeting by the SCPF president, Anne Eckersley,
who was visiting RCC anyway, she visits all or most of the clubs as

Re the award, it is true that I have belonged to the club for more
years than I care to remember, from the days when it was SOUTH
Reading Camera club. I have held several positions on the committee
over the years. For those who don’t know, we became Reading club
when the original Reading camera club folded, and we were no longer
based in south Reading so became the only club in Reading.
Well, best wishes to all members, happy snapping, and I hope to
belong to our great club for a few more years yet.
