Accolades for RPS Volunteers at the Digital Imaging Group Thames Valley Centre

Sunday 15th October 2017 was a memorable day for eight DIG Thames Valley committee members, past and present when they were presented with Certificates of Appreciation by the President of the Royal Photographic Society, Robert Albright HonFRPS.

Robert Albright was already booked as the presenter for the day and judge for our annual Millennium Cup print competition, therefore it was seen as an opportunity not to be missed to ask him to present these RPS awards to members in recognition for their respected and valuable service.

Volunteers play an essential role in the running of the DIG Thames Valley Centre and are the reason it continues to thrive. They have all been generous with their time, energy and expertise.

Members presented with a Bronze badge and Certificate to mark their four years of service were:

David Beaumont, Laurie Pate, Mike Reed ARPS and John Scotten ARPS

Members presented with a Silver badge and Certificate to mark their eight years of service were:

Janet Barton, Alan Cross LRPS and Roger Norton LRPS

Special mention for Carol Drew who achieved this status in 2015.

Having this many awards for volunteers is quite remarkable and shows the success of DIG Thames Valley, we truly appreciate their dedication.
