President Geoff Marshall says the event is the ultimate competition'' among members, who are recreational and semi- professional photographers from through- out the region. This year there were 63 entries, and the judges faced a tough ask to hand out the awards. There are two subject categories -- cre- ative and open -- along with competitions for prints and projected images (both digital and transparency). Members can enter in either the novice or experienced sections. The images were judged by Bruce Girdwood, who is well-known in photo- graphic circles for his creative and land- scape images. Bruce provided a stimulating and constructive commentary on all the images submitted,'' Mr Marshall said. The winners were: Novice Creative projected -- Jennifer Monk Novice Open Projected -- Mike Doragh Experienced Creative Projected -- Helen Westerbeke Experienced Open Projected -- Helen Westerbeke Novice Open Print -- Rennie Lovell Novice Creative Print -- Marg Jorgenson Experienced Creative print -- Margaret Brown Experienced Open Print -- Ray Lovell. A long love of local history By KRIS DANDO Former Porirua Historical Association chairman Roger Beauchamp died last month aged 80. Well known for speaking his mind, he actively promoted heritage awareness. Mr Beauchamp joined the Porirua His- torical Association (PHA) in the 1960s and was involved with the formation of the city's first museum and establishing the heritage trail. Some of his other projects included the restoration of the Workingmen's Hut in the Porirua Hospital grounds and a howitzer gun at the Titahi Bay Returned and Services' Association. He was also a long- time advocate for the promotion of history at Pataka. Mr Beauchamp organised a number of Anzac Day ceremonies in Pauatahanui and lobbied hard for the restoration of Taylor Stace Cottage, the oldest building in the region, which was completed not long before he died. Kapi-Mana News spoke with Mr Beauchamp in May, after he was given life membership of PHA. He said: History is something I've always loved, and I've worked hard to ensure we're looking after and preserving things for future generations. Someone has to.'' He and wife Barbara lived at the same house in Cluny Rd, Plimmerton, since 1960. When he bought the section, it had nothing but an army hut on it. Mr Beauchamp trained as a motor mech- anic and was employed by Sir Clifford Plimmer for a time, and spent years over- seas before returning to New Zealand to settle down''. Close friend and PHA secretary Brian Mosen said Mr Beauchamp was renowned for his bus tours that took in all aspects of Porirua history. His favourite, though, was a tour of all the military sites, both Maori and Pakeha, in the region. For many years he was the driving force within the [PHA], and will be surely missed.''
