Lynn Lambeth APAGB.

Lynn was presented with her APAGB Award at the Southern Counties Photographic Federation AGM on 11th May 2014 by the President John Hodge.

Lynn joined the New Forest Camera Club in 1975 later joining Viewfinders and becoming their Chair Person. Over these years Lynn took on many roles at club, federation and national events. Lynn was President of the Southern Federation from 2008 to 2010.

Her surprise when John said her name was captured on film and may be used for blackmail in the future.

Judge, Margaret Salisbury

AGM & Finals Day  11th May 2014

We had a big turn-out for the new Finals Day format.

The AGM went smoothly, the key item being the election of the Council for the next year. Two members retired ( Ian Miller and Secretary Sue Watts who has done a great job for the last three years) . Tony Oliver was elected Vice-President, with Lynn Lambeth moving to the Secretary’s role.

League Finals Day

The new format saw the traditional Individual competition between the highest scoring images from each club, and the new League Cup inter-club competitions, held between the top clubs in each of the League Divisions.  The judge for the day was the “Welsh Dragon” Margaret Salisbury FRPS  MFIAP  APAGB  FIPF.

Awards in the Individual competitions were:


1st  Choirboys                                        Jim Pascoe

2nd Chariots of Fire                             Karl Schrader

3rd  Heron with Fish                            Jeanie King


HCs went to: Barry Callan,Chris Hammond, Terry Turner, Norman Wiles


1st  Young Goat herders                     Jon Mitchell

2nd  Diving for the Win                     Fergus Cowhig

3rd  Barn Owl                                      Bill Brooks

HCs went to: Anne Cole, Keith Polwin, Louis Rumis.

This was followed by the League Cups, where we were looking forward to potential “giant-killing” by some of the lower Division clubs !  Bracknell CC ( Div 4) came very close, tying on points with Southampton CC, but losing out on count-back thanks to one score of 20 from Southampton. Unfortunately only three of the five clubs competed.

League Cup (Prints)

1st Southampton CC (Div 1)                             132 points

2nd Bracknell CC (Div 4)                                  132 points

3rd Viewfinders of Romsey (Div 2)                124 points

In the PDIs, six clubs competed, Southampton ( Div 1) again coming out on top, but a great result also for Bognor Regis, the Division 6 club who came 2nd.

League Cup (PDIs)

1st  Southampton CC (Div 1)                            138 points

2nd Bognor Regis CC (Div 6)                           130

3rd Alton CC (Div 2)                                         121

4th Salisbury CC (Div 3)                                   119

5th Wareham CC (Div 7)                                   117

6th Boscombe CC (Div 4)                                  116

7th Wokingham & East Berks CC (Div 5)      114

Following the presentations, the day was rounded off by a wonderful lecture from Margaret Salisbury on the theme of “People”. Lavishly illustrated with some beautiful prints, this was a very emotive and inspirational talk which had at least one member of the audience in tears.

It is with great sadness that we heard of the death of long-time Federation supporter Jack Whitmore, who suffered a fatal stroke at the weekend.

Jack was a stalwart of the Southern Federation Council, on which he served for twenty years from 1986. He was the Newsletter Editor in 1987-8, Secretary from 1995 to 2005, and served two terms as President, in 1990 and again in 2005/6. Jack was delighted to be able to participate in the launch of the 50th Anniversary Book ( which includes a nice photo of Jack), alongside four other Past Presidents. He continued as an active member of Viewfinders of Romsey Camera Club until his death.  We offer our sincere condolences to his wife Liz and all the family.

There is to be a service to commemorate Jack’s life. This will be held at Wessex Vale Crematorium, Bubb Lane, West End, Southampton on Wed. 21st May at 3.15p.m.

Please no black ties   – it was his wish.

Family flowers only please. Donations in memory of Jack, in the form of cheques should be made out for “Ward F8, Acute Stroke Unit, Southampton General Hospital“, and may be sent to Waterside Funeral Home, 13-15 The Marsh, Hythe, Hants. SO45 6AJ.

Afterwards everyone is welcome to join the family at the Macdonald Botley  Park Hotel, Winchester Rd, Boorley Green, SO32 2VA for light refreshments. Maps can be provided.
Victoria, his granddaughter,  has suggested we have a “Memory Book” there for people to record their memory of Jack, humorous or otherwise.  Please bring something with you, write it on the day or even later, but the book will then be something  for the family to treasure and keep.

Kerry Sealy, at Viewfinders of Romsey Camera Club, has also contributed some words that the club would like to share:

It is with great sadness that it was learnt that Jack Whitemore died on Saturday 10th May after a sudden massive stroke.  Jack, with his wife Liz, were long-time Honorary Members of Viewfinders of Romsey Camera Club, and recipients of the SCPF Roll of Honour in recognition of great service to club and Federation.

Few Federation members could fail to have heard of Jack. In his time he had been the Federation President on two occasions; secretary to the Federation from 1995 to 2001; news letter editor in 1987 and 1988; long-time member of the SCPF council; and a federation judge for many years.

In Viewfinders he had been a loyal member since the early 1980s serving in many committee roles including the chairmanship.  He was to many the epitome of the ethos of the club which has aimed to be a friendly and welcoming group.  Jack would go out of his way to greet new members and ran introductory courses for those who needed it.  The Romsey Open Photographic Exhibition greatly benefited from his experience and organisational abilities over a number of years and it is true to say that without his and Liz’s total commitment would not have been the success that it was.

Most of all Jack will be remembered as one who had a great sense of humour who would never have said anything bad about anyone.  A person who could always be relied on to be there when a job needed doing without being asked, and one who in his quiet way greatly influenced what was to be done without rancour.

We’ll miss you Jack, and our thoughts are with you Liz, and the family.
