A chain around my neck

Well, its better than a noose.
I was quite happy bumbling along in my own way when the Executive of the PAGB (Photographic Alliance of Great Britain) decided to grant me the great honour of being their President.
This was at the end of April and my feet have not touched the floor since. It will quieten down for a few Summer (??) weeks and I am gearing myself up for a busy September onwards.

If I am good they will let me remain President for two years - I think the theory is if I get it wrong in the first year I can have another try. Whatever, I am really looking forward to visiting as many Clubs and Federations who will invite me so that I can show off the Presidential Badge of Office -- oooeee!
