Photo Competition Winner Announced!

All our winners and runners up of our Wildlife & Nature Photo Competition enjoyed an informal award ceremony at The RSPB Lodge in Sandy yesterday afternoon as part of their Big Garden Birdwatch Warm Up Weekend. Despite the snowy conditions we saw a lot of passionate photographers travel from far and wide to collect their prizes and a copy of their 2019 charity calendar.

Mark Brandon, The RSPB Visitor Experiences Manager, welcomed everyone and John Jefferies, owner of Fuller’s Hill Cottages, gave a short speech and thanked everyone for entering the competition and also The RSPB, Snappy Snaps in Biggleswade and Max Spielman.

The 2019 charity calendar is to raise money for the Great Gransden Pre-school Playgroup, The BBC Children in Need Appeal and The RSPB and will be availbale to purchase soon…
