30 May - 1 June 2014
Our album is available along with an album from Jonathan Brind and pictures
from Bill Shuter on our gallery page.
Thanks to Jenny and Angela who have posted photos on our Facebook page
We welcome links to your pictures - send
us the details. Alternatively you can send us your favourites - if there are just a few they can be attached to an email, but if you have a lot the best way is to send them to us by a file transfer site - there are lots around but Microsoft's 'Onedrive' does the job, it's free, and the recipient doesn't have to register (use the 'get a link' sharing option). A message for Stephen who sent us photos and hasn't had any reply - please send us another email without the attachment because your last one was blocked.
Our report and picture links for the 2013 Dickensian Christmas Festival have moved to our News Archive page
