Alan Carter, Director of Portfolio Management at the Land Trust, said:

“The standard of entries submitted was fantastic.

“It’s great to see that so many people have spent time at Land Trust spaces capturing the fantastic things that are happening there.

“The winning photographs really captured the essence of what we do. They showed families out enjoying a day at the park or people keeping fit by using our parks to exercise outdoors.

“Others simply captured the beauty of nature: the things that many of us don’t get the chance to see often enough. It is fantastic to be able to put so many of these images in to one calendar.”

The calendar is available to download from the Land Trust website and 50 physical copies will be made available to win for those who complete a short survey for the Trust. More will be revealed on the Land Trust’s Facebook and Twitter pages.
