UPDATE 23.03.23: There’s just a few days left to get your entries in for the Thornbury Town Council Photography Contest. We’ve got some sun forecast over the weekend to make a last minute entry – there’s still time! Remember you don’t need to go far from your front door to find nature and wildlife. Amongst the spring bulbs and blossom, you’ll find all kinds of mini beasts and birds starting to appear. Could our cover star be living in your very own garden? You have until Sunday 26th March to find them!

Submit your photograph(s) NOW!

Let people see the unique beauty of the nature and wildlife in Thornbury!

Thornbury Town Council is developing the Local Climate and Nature Action Plan (“the Plan”) to address the ecological crisis our world is facing. With a good plan, there must be a good cover! If you have any photograph(s) that show our lovely Thornbury and remind people to cherish local nature and wildlife, share with us! The winning photograph will be on the cover of the Plan and the photographer will win a dedicated tree and £20 of local shopping vouchers! Other suitable photographs might also be adopted on different occasions relating to the Plan. All you need to know is shown below. We are waiting for you!
