A picture of two of the clergy at St Michael & All Angels church has won a prize at this year’s Bedford Park Festival Photographic Exhibition. David Beresford’s photo of Father Graham Morgan and Mother Nicola Stanley won the humour section, voted for by visitors to the Exhibition.

The prizes were presented by portrait photographer Vibeke Dahl, who also selected the overall winner of the competition and donated a free sitting for a portrait, to be raffled. “The standard was very high and I thought the Exhibition was a wonderful community event, encouraging photographers of all ages” she said.
