Keen snappers have even more time to capture the perfect moment and enter Garstang Town Council’s photographic competition, as the deadline has been extended.

Keen snappers have even more time to capture the perfect moment and enter Garstang Town Council’s photographic competition, as the deadline has been extended.

With people making the most of the summer holidays and going away, the town council has decided to open the competition for longer, allowing enthusiasts more time to send in entries.

The deadline has increased from Thursday September 1 to Monday September 12.

The town council launched the competition earlier this month to add community photos to its new look website.

At the top of the home page there are four large scrolling photos and a gallery of photographs at the bottom.

We are now looking to change these pictures on a regular basis and would like all you photographers to take pictures of your favourite Garstang views and scenery.

One of the organisers, Coun Peter Ryder, said: “With people being away, we thought opening up the competition for another week would not do any harm.

“We hope to increase awareness and get more publicity.

“I understand there are already a number of entries and Garstang Camera Club have contacted their members.

“We have launched this competition to get residents to look at and use the new town council website - it has lots of good information on it and latest news etc.

“We want it to be the first port of call to find out what is going on in Garstang, especially with all the new planning applications and redeveloped of the old council offices/community centre.

“We are looking for great pictures of Garstang places and images that locals love and we can use on the website to promoted our town

“Lastly we want to get people involved with what’s going on and how they can get involved with future of our town.”

For a chance to see your photo on the town council website, send entries to info@garstangtowncouncil.org.
