HPS members Brian Cooke ARPS AFIAP and Trish French ARPS DPAGB came first and second respectively in a photography competition held recently by estate agents Hamptons to find images showcasing the beauty and variety of St Albans. Brian's image "Clock Tower, St Albans" won him the first prize of £250 whilst "St Albans Abbey in May Time" won Trish the second prize of £50.
