As incoming President Kim Smith said “We are very pleased to see the photographic entries from so many talented Young Photographers. In our eyes everyone is a winner!” Knighton Librarian Hannah Isaacson added “We are proud to be able to display these amazing photographs both in the main library and in the hallway. We also thank the Knighton Rotary Club for all their efforts in creating such a beautiful display from such a wonderful collection of photographs on the Colours of Nature theme”
