Editor - Derek Godridge and the team: PCC News this week from Paul Cooper:

As we approach the end of the winter season, Rob Eschle did an excellent job of judging our final competition, Image of the Year. The results are below, with Derek Godridge LRPS AFIAP practically wiping the board. Rob gave us his valued opinion on the merits of all the work on show and also where they may be improved.
