This was a three-way competition held on Tuesday 11 April between Beckenham, West Wickham and Bromley for prints and PDIs judged by Ian Brash. Bromley beat West Wickham in the prints, they beat us in the PDIs by one point but Beckenham beat both Bromley and West Wickham making them the winners.
This was judged by David Wood, who selected his favourite five panels from which he chose the panel by Steve Jones entitled “Fruit Slices” as the winner. Congratulations Steve, see Fruit Slices for the winning panel.
