Hitchin Camera Club is sad to announce that Jim Gabriel former member passed away last week due to a lung infection.
Jim was an active member of the club for many year and and took part in many of the competitions and made several presentations including the construction of the 2nd Severn Crossing.
He was born in Australia but spent much of his working life in Bristol designing low-access buses, before moving to Hitchin with his wife Bev. He was a keen artist and was involved in designing the extension to his church in Stopsley.
Jim was particularly active in club competitions winning the Overall Digital trophy 3 times running (in 1999, 2000 and 2001). Please find some of Jim’s Competition to remind you of his photography and contribution to the club,
