DHVG IAM Photo Competition 2021

The annual photo competition took place at Decembers indoor meeting. 32 entries were received, and those present voted for their 3 favourites (1st,2nd and 3rd).

When the votes were counted there was a tie for second place, and a clear winner.

In third place was Iain Harwood with a picture of Riber Castle with the new apartment blocks below, in contrast.

Joint second were – David Graham with a picture of a Dragon Fly and Martin Knightons picture of snow and mist near Buxton.

The outright winner was Rob Lowe with his picture of water droplets with a refracted image of a flower in the droplets.

Well done Rob.

Chesterfield Biker Breakfast

The Derbyshire Upright team (Police and Fire Service) organised a Biker Breakfast event at Chesterfield Football Club recently. Several members of our Group kindly offered to attend to represent us and help any members of the public wanting advice. This was the first outing of our new gazebo, and it looks very smart. There was a lot of interest in what we have to offer, so we look forward to some new members.

Thanks to Tommy Thorpe, Keith Pearce, Keith Seaton, Rob Jones, Rob Lowe and Andy Statham (also a Blood Biker).
