There will be 15 classes and we have attempted to keep it simple!

Please send in your photographs which should be taken between:

Monday 24th August and Monday 31st August.

Please note your photos show the date they were taken – so in the spirit of fairness please keep to these dates!  No using Photoshop!

Send to Philip either by email pandamid@btinternet.com or by WhatsApp to his mobile 07977 596209.  Please send emails singly so it doesn’t clog up his system or yours!

If you do not have a smart phone/tablet do get someone to take them for you and send them on.

Doris Smallwood will again be our judge.  This is just for fun!  No cups but there will be a prize for best in class, best in show and the most points.
