Header Pictures

Our header photos have to be cropped but so good are they that they appear here in their full uncropped glory. We are lucky to have so many talented photographers in the village.Would you like to see your picture here ? Send it to [email protected]

Please do not use these pictures for your own ends without crediting the photographer who took them.

Our header for many years and still a good one, unfortunately we don’t know who took it so cannot credit it to them.

Autumn Colour by Kevin Pearce

Taken between showers, the window boxes at the Village Hall make a fine show. These are planted by Tricia Samuel and a group of helpers and are a great credit to her skill and imagination.

  Taken by Alan Chambers, a visitor to the village, this shot of a Perseid meteor ,set against the glory of the Milky Way, seems appropriate at the beginning of Advent. It reminds us how privileged we are to live in an area with generally low levels of light pollution.

The New Bells arrive at the Church for hanging. [Actually this is an old one that has been retuned by removal of part of it. Hence the shiny rim.]

Ok so its after Christmas but this beautifully exposed shot of the Lantern Parade on the 20th December is just too good not to use as our header picture this month.

Thanks to Marilyn Peddle for this and the other shots in our gallery section

February 2019
Spring is busting out all over. Another of Marilyn’s wonderful shots, this time looking toward Hambledon, with Dorsets signature flowers in the foreground.

The bank opposite Millbrook Drive is a joy to behold with spring flowers.Whenever I have tried recently it has always been foggy but Jayne Harris has captured them beautifully. We have more of Jaynes superb pictures to come in future months.
April – May 2019
Spring flowers are a feature of the village although many of them have forgotten when spring is and appear at all sorts of strange times.

This array of tulips and daisies is down Rectory Lane as seen by Kevin Pearce

Its not only kids who can play peek a boo. Seen last summer by Jayne Harris.
Viv Leighs picture of sunflowers reminds us that despite todays rain, the summer is not yet over.
