On Wednesday night the 15th of May 2019 after their AGM, Ely Photographic Club held their 2019 Awards ceremony where trophies were given to all the winners of the competitions held during the year.
One of the clubs more experienced photographers Mr Kevin Pigney was awarded many well earned trophies and everyone congratulated Kevin. There were also several other club members receiving well earned awards.
Then you had new comer to the club Mrs Helena Mueller, who the week before had entered not only her first competition with the club but indeed her first ever competition full stop, collecting her first of hopefully many more trophies.
