It is with great sadness that the club has to report the death of a former member Gill Wheeler. Gill sadly lost her long battle with cancer this week. Our thoughts and prayer are with her husband John.
Gill joined the Club in the 2017-18 season and quickly showed tat she had great talent and potential, her image Female Polar Bear, by was the ‘Beginners Colour Print’ of the year and was eventually judged to be the ‘Colour Print of the Year’. A great achievement in her first year at the club.
Her friend and club member Julia Brooks recalls; “She loved being a member of the club, and I think her potential talent with the camera was evident in her wonderful photograph of the polar bear, in her first season. She was delighted with the accolades she received for that image. She was happiest when she was capturing images of wildlife, and her beautiful travel photos, of which there are many other examples. She was also a talented painter”.
