Get Involved!

Please send your photos for our online Advent Calendar to webmaster

They should be autumn/winter photos of our local area; ones taken during lockdown would be lovely. We don’t promise to use them all as we’ll be matching them to an appropriate set of words, so the bigger the choice, the better.

 

Ones that fit the themes of darkness and light would be particularly welcome.  We may need to crop photos to fit the required size.
