(Southern Counties Photographic Federation – Roll of Honour)
One of our photographers, Stephen Pritchard, felt very privileged to be asked by his local camera club to be the event photographer for a very special evening.
Long term member, Mike Farrow, was presenting an evening of fine photography with a special part covering 3D imagery taken with film. Everyone was requested to put on cardboard spectacles, which give the audience a slightly humorous sci-fi look.
The biggest surprise of the evening however was when John Hodge, President of the Southern Counties Photographic Federation arrived to give Mike and his wife, Cath, with the SCPF Roll of Honour
– a very special award for those who have given many years of support for club photography.
Mike and Cath have been hugely important in making our club what it is, through their work
in various committee posts, always being willing to help and encourage, and not least for inviting
generations of new club members into their home to instruct them in the craft of photography.
After a short review of some of their many contributions, John Hodge presented them each with their Roll of Honour with everyone in the club applauding in what we all agreed was well deserved recognition.
“Well done Mike and Cath, and thanks for all the photography advice you’ve give me over the years”

Supporting local communities is important to us at Inside Your Business. So we were happy when the Old Basing and Lychpit Parish Council took us up on our offer of completing a Google Maps Business View Tour for some of their facilities.
Old Basing is a old English Village with a long history after being settled by Saxons in around AD700 by a tribe called the Basingas, Basingstoke became an outlying western settlement of the Basinga’s people. The village and surrounding area has a number of historic buildings and the Old Basing and Lychpit Parish Council maintains one of them as the Lychpit Community Hall (Google Maps Business Tour being completed soon). The Parish Council also runs The Pavilion meeting room on the Old Basing Recreation Ground. This meeting room is used by the Parish Council for various public committee meetings and they wished to make better use of this well-kept facility by hiring it out to the general public.
Getting a Google Maps Business View was seen by the Parish Council as ideal for showing possible hirers the meeting room without the need for a member of staff to show them around. They liked the idea of being able to guide any phone call inquiries to their website to view a virtual tour to give them an idea of its layout and interior without the need to travel, so saving time and money for both parties. Viewers would also get to see the kitchen and other facilities provided.
