Yesterday evening, I had the pleasure of hosting the Kinlochleven Community Trust calendar competition reception, to thank both the winners and sponsors for making this extremely popular project a big success. Six years ago, when I first suggested we produce a photographic calendar to raise funds for village projects, I never thought it would still be going strong years later, with local people eagerly buying the calendar to send to family and friends across the world.
Why is it so successful? Firstly, because of the high quality of photographs submitted to the competition; all by eager amateur photographers. Secondly, because local residents are proud of the stunning location in which we are privileged to live and want to show it off to others. Take a look at the winners of this year’s “Best of the Best,” celebrating the amazing photos we have received since starting the competition and I think you will agree.
It’s not too late to get a copy, they are available from Kinlochleven Post Office, the Wee Village Shop and from the Community Trust (phone Jayne on 01855 831779). At a reasonable £3.99 each, with all profits going to village projects, they are an ideal stocking filler.
