Calendar Competition

‘My Favourite Place in Our Village’ - get your photo or artwork featured in a calendar for 2018.


On Monday 30th January, Robin Gildersleeve (FORAS secretary) came and talked to all the children in assembly about an exciting competition!  This competition, run by FORAS, is for the children to either take a photo or paint/draw a picture on the theme of - 

My Favourite Place in Our Village

The photo or drawing can be of any place in Haddenham and Aldreth - well known village landmarks, the back garden, inside the shed, the house, their bedroom, where they play football, the church, a favourite shop, the orchards, the windmill, the water tower.........  

              The list is endless but it will be your child's favourite place!

The exciting thing is that 13 of these photos or pictures will be featured in a calendar that will be on sale to everyone!  The first FORAS 'Village Calendar 2018'.  Such an exciting idea!

The children have already got lots of ideas for the competition so please encourage them to enter - read the guide below - and we look forward to lots of exciting photos and artwork coming our way very soon!
