New Instructions
After the role they played in the unpleasantness last year, I believe it's no longer appropriate to use Gilbey & Sons as the official School photographers. I know their association with The Poplars goes back to the mid-nineteenth century and this decision will anger traditionalists on the Staff and the Board of Governors, therefore I wish to make the switch with as little fanfare as possible. 

From this point forward, we shall be using the very talented Ms. Kate Carpenter ( )for all our official photography requirements. I believe her expressive landscape photography and skilled portraiture will more than satisfy our needs. I do not feel it is necessary to announce this change publicly, and ask therefore that you quietly book her services as the occasion arises. June will send you all her contact and payment details separately.

I trust you will handle the switch with all due sensitivity. I am the new broom and I am entitled to my clean sweep -  but I do not wish to cause unnecessary rancor.
