Do you always find yourself stopping to take a photo of buzzing bees on flowers or impressive sea views?  

To celebrate World Photography Day on Thursday 19th August we are running a photography competition for the first time this summer. We will be announcing and sharing the winning photographs from each category on the day.  


Happy Snappy (children up to the age of 18)  

Take a snap in the outdoors with you and your favourite plant or animal.  We want to see what makes you smile the most whether it’s a 6-foot sunflower, a colourful butterfly or even a creepy-crawly!
