We were really impressed with the response to the photo competition - thank you to everyone who entered. The different interpretations of the two themes were as many and varied as the lichens that were photographed. The display of over forty photos really brightened the reception room for those of us attending the AGM weekend in person. Many thanks to Bill Unwin for organizing the competition.
