At the meeting last Thursday, the many years of service by long standing member and former President, Colin Sutton was recognised by the Yorkshire Photographic Union with a 40 year certificate. As co-opted Vice President, I would like to officially congratulate Colin on this remarkable achievement on behalf of the members of the Bradford Photographic Society.

I would also like to take this opportunity to thank all of our long serving members who are always so willing to share their many years of experience and expertise with us 'youngsters', and particularly Graeme Mitchell and Don Crabtree who continue to be such active members of the Committee and Society.
