Sadly due to family illness Peter Jones is unable to give his print talk on Friday 21st June. However we have an excellent replacement who will also be giving a print talk, namely Malcolm Cook from Leicester Forest Photographic Society. We know from past experience that Malcolm's talks are always very entertaining, and we are grateful that he can step in at short notice.
