Belmont 16s Photography Club Exhibitions May – June 2019

The exhibitions were very successful and drew a lot of visitors and complimentary comments. The success was due to the hard work of Katherine James and the team who helped organising the images. Thanks to Katherine, Susan Slack, Thomas Buckwalter, Bill Chambers, Jill Helps, Roy Killen and Colin Schofield.

The exhibitions involve a lot of hard work and it was wonderful to have the above members volunteer their time and labour.
