Croydon Camera Club History: 1890-2000

1989: Slow Revival
Centenary Committee acts

Mrs Malarkey was formally co-opted on 18th April 1989 to help the Centenary Committee with its planning for the event - only nine months away. The Sub-Committee now has J. M. Hope, Chairman, Mrs E. Malarkey, H. Cundell, R. King and S. G. Pickford brought in to help with the History of the Club over the past 100 years, with the assistance of some notes from Harold Stillwell.

The death was reported on 23rd January 1989 of Miss Daphne Petchey, the first and only Lady President (1970-1972).

At the AGM on 31st May, the President, Secretary and Treasurer were all re-elected. Membership stood at 68.

The Club library was to be revived, and for 1990/91 Croydon would take part in the SLF Colour Print Competition.

By mid-summer a short draft of the Club History was received from Harold Stillwell and the author was deputed to finish off this book, which you have now almost completed reading.
