Congratulations to our photographic competition winners!

We had a huge number of excellent photographs to judge before making our final decisions but, the twelve winning photographs that will grace our 2018 calendar have been chosen!

Congratulations to Brian Calder and Laura Green (under-16 section), as the two overall winners, each receiving a £250 voucher from competition sponsors Wex Photographic.

And, well done to the others, Mike Dawson, Tim Harris, Andy Thompson, Eric Browett, Tim Phillips, John Assheton (2 images!), Lynn Brown, Stephen Hembury and Hilary Gostling.

We think the calendar looks pretty good, and it will be for sale very shortly – with all proceeds going towards funding work on our three reserves. Watch this space – we’ll let you know when it is available.
