This year, I once again invited local photographic and camera clubs to submit photographs for me to consider for my Christmas Card which is sent to local businesses, schools, churches, community groups and individuals.

I was delighted to receive so many entries to this years competition, and selecting a favourite was never going to be an easy task, as I am sure you can appreciate. However, after much deliberation the winning entry this year was from Robert Morris.

Robert’s winning design beautifully captured a young stag taken on Brownhills Common.

Thank you to everyone who entered.
