We had a prize giving event for winners of the Summer Photography Competition, on Thursday 16th September. Winners were awarded their prizes by local business owners and judges of the competition. GBDG held two free photography workshops in the community gardens in August, with Jean Napier MA, to give budding photographers tips and practice on how to take good pictures. First prize for adults went to David Leppard, who received a £60 meal voucher from Charles Dark for the Wynnstay Hotel. First prize for under 18s was Henry Brown, who received £60 from Mark Clive of local electrical company Bright Sparks. Second prize went to Siân Campion, winning a hose donated by Travis Perkins. Highly commended winners were Louise Smith, who received a £10 voucher from Jonathan Gross from Dyfi Wholefoods, and Pat Leppard, who received a £10 voucher from Mair Tomos of Blodyn Tatws.
