Today the PAGB held it’s 20th Inter-club Print Championship in Ormskirk and I am happy to report that all our L&CPU representatives performed well with Wigan 10 Foto Club finishing worthy winners just ahead of Dumfries. Robert Millin from Wigan 10 said “We are very pleased to have represented the L&CPU bringing home the trophy and adding it to the PAGB PDI Inter-club trophy that we won in July. It is a stunning achievement to hold both of the PAGB’s major club trophies at the same time and we are proud of that fact for both our club and our federation.”
