Meeting Notes:
Clive reported that he had been receiving a lot of scam phone calls supposedly from Talktalk and for members to be on their guard.

Clive told members that it was hoped that our 5th January AGM meeting would be held in our new venue across the road in the Methodist church Guild room (Rear of Askews furniture store).
There would be 8 parking spaces and Askews had also kindly agreed that we could use 2 of their Bays nearest to the chapel entrance.

10.25 a.m. Basic Editing.
Clive demonstrated how to go about basic photo editing in Photoshop Elements 13 using "Expert"mode i.e. Preferences, cropping, enhancing, grid/rulers, layers, bordering and saving. He also briefly demonstrated how to make cards. Clive handed out crib sheets to members.

11.15 a.m. Christmas Quiz.
Frances had prepared a Christmas on screen quiz for members to partake in which was shown on Screen. Alan handed out quiz sheets with 40 question to answer. Teams of three took part and the winners were the Avengers made up of Tony Hall, Linda Mullen and Rod Bakewell. Their prize was a box of Maltesers each.

11.50 a.m. Clive thanked Alan and Frances for doing the Christmas quiz and this was also echoed by Eileen Grayson followed by members applause. Peter Grayson also said thank you to Clive for all his hard work throughout the year - prompting another round of applause from members.
