Photograph Competition

In support of the development of a Neighbourhood Plan for Freckenham, the sub-group supporting the Parish Council would like to announce a photograph competition. The theme of the competition will be Freckenham At It’s Finest and will provide an opportunity for residents to share their photographs of the visual aspects of the Parish that they most value. This could include buildings or parts of buildings, open spaces, flowers and trees, animals and birds etc. The winners (one adult and one under 18) will be selected by an independent panel of judges. Highly Commended photographs will be displayed at the next Neighbourhood Plan drop-in session.
