South West Region AGM

25 February 2018

Region: South West

The AGM was attended by around 30 members. We also welcomed Nicola Young, RPS Volunteer Coordinator, from Bath.

The AGM was conducted within the hour, receiving reports from the RO, Treasurer and Webmaster as well as our folio secretary and Contemporary and VA Groups on the years activities. The Committee were re-elected en bloc with no changes, the one change which was made being that Tim Sanders takes over the Regional Organiser role from Mick Medley. After the AGM a short time was devoted to an open discussion with members offering suggestions and ideas for the future as well as some clarification of some items.

After lunch, Les Loosemore ARPS gave us a wonderful afternoon showing his prints. Les is a prolific print worker and his own display boards held between 20 - 28 prints in sets, which the audience were invited to have a look at before the next set. He works in sets with a varity of subjects, from his starting out in sports photography to just about anything he fancies photographing.

His talks were delivered with humour and passion with an exceptionally high standard of work.
