Update on the results for the PAGB Interfederation PDI

The MCPF has been promoted to First in the Nature section (see PAGB website) because N&EMPF had a picture disqualified because one of the photographers entered the same picture into 2 federations.
Margaret Tabner is no longer a member of SPS although she is shown as a member on the entry list.  I was brought to the attention of the officials but it was too late to change the entry form.

AFIAP for Paul Hayward and Geraldine Stephenson

Congratulations to Paul and Geraldine for the award of AFIAP.

Paul says — Hi. Just thought I’d let you know that Geraldine Stephenson and myself have just been awarded our AFIAP credentials. We’ve probably had enough acceptances for a while now but it was the last Lockdown that concentrated our efforts in making the application. I’ve got Geraldine to thank for pushing me when I was getting disillusioned with all the documentation and thought of going fishing instead. Haha It was well worth it in the end.
