The Calendars and the Photographs

A village calendar for Nayland with Wissington has been produced by the Community Council since 2010. Following a suggestion by Hazel Gardiner in 2008 a sub-committee was formed to bring the idea to fruition. Members of the committee for the first calendar were: Hazel Gardiner, Lorraine Brooks, Wendy Sparrow, Jenny Smith and Chris Hunt. More recently, Colin Ramsell, Pat Bray and Trevor Smy joined the team in place of Jenny Smith and Chris Hunt.

A photographic competition, open to anyone living or working in the parish, is held each May to generate the photographs for the twelve months and a front cover. For each month the modern photograph is accompanied by an older image and historical information.

The stunning photographs which have been entered in the competitions have made judging very difficult for the professional photographer requested to fulfil this task. The images have been excellent and such a superb reflection of our parish, its character and landscape.

All the entries are on display on the May Bank Holiday following judging, but it is felt that this is insufficient to do them justice so they have been included in the photo albums. Copies of these albums are available online - click on the images to view.

The Annual Calendar Photographic Competition : 2017

The photographic competition to generate images for the 2018 Nayland with Wissington Calendar took place on 1st May.  There were 130 beautiful scenes submitted, making selection of just twelve scenes and a cover very difficult indeed. 

The judge, Geoff Meadowcroft, was impressed by the marvellous variety of village activities and picturesque views that had been represented and the interesting compositions captured. The photographs selected were submitted by Graham Wiles, Maggie Ryan, Julie Clark, John Dalton, Hazel Gardiner, Mike Hunter, Justin Dowding, Lorraine Brooks, Mandy Cook and Wendy Sparrow.

As hoped entries represented the different seasons with our range of weather conditions, from glorious sunshine to mist and flood.  Locations ranged from village activities and events such as the Street Fayre, Church Fete, Open Gardens and Court Knoll Archaeological Dig to parish landmarks, such as St James' and St Mary’s churches and Caley Green.  There were a variety of street scenes, views of the meandering river Stour, the countryside and farming views and some interesting architectural and natural features including the horseshoe weir and the footbridge at Pop's Piece. Several people managed to capture spur of the moment scenes, such as a vintage car travelling through Mill Street, the ducks and resident goose being fed on Caley Green and traffic negotiating floods on the by-pass. 

The 2018 village calendar will be on sale at the the Flower Show on 5th August. 

In the meantime, don’t forget to keep your cameras to hand to capture scenes for next year’s competition.
