On Sunday 1st September we hosted another very successful APM Advisory day at Foxton. Once again we were fortunate to have the PAGB team travel down from Scotland and the North-West, plus two more from the Midlands.
We are very grateful for the support from Rod Wheelans MPAGB HonPAGB MFIAP FIPF, Anne Grenier MPAGB, Richard Speirs DPAGB APAGB BPE 2*, Gordon Jenkins HonPAGB, Peter Cheetham HonPAGB and David Gibbins ARPS APAGB EFIAP BPE 4* CPAGB a-v.
Because we had such a high response, (our largest ever - 33 for prints and 20 for PDIs,) we also needed to invite two more local judges, Colin Westgate FRPS MFIAP MPAGB APAGB and Roy Essery MPAGB to help out. We are very grateful to them all for giving up their time.

The events don’t run on their own and I am very grateful to the following members who supported this day. My sincere thanks go to the following: Naomi Saul, Paul and Shirley Radden, Simon Jenkins, Liz and Nick Akers, Mike Dobson and my wife, Pam.
There is so much interest and many requests for more such days that I am hoping to organise another for next autumn, subject to committee approval. The PAGB team are willing to travel down again, if we can agree on a suitable date.
