The Pen and Camera Club of Methodism

Founded 1904



Trophies

The club has a fine array of trophies it awards to its members for various competitions. These awards are heavily prized by their winners, and keenly fought for every year. 

Presentations are made at the AGM, and most trophies are kept for 1 year.

Some of these trophies have been awarded every year since 1913. 

Club Honours

Honorary Life Memberships are awarded to members who have given long and distinguished service to the club. 

Our President wears a chain of office. He can be seen wearing it on our home page.
Each year a member is awarded the John Morton Memorial Tray for particular service to the club.
