Love Your Parks Photography Competition

The Borough Council of King’s Lynn & West Norfolk is holding a photography competition as part of West Norfolk In Bloom 2016.

Prizes will be awarded for the best photographs on the theme “Love Your Parks”.

The competition’s theme of “Love Your Parks” covers anything you can see in a park or green space in West Norfolk that shows our parks at their best. Plants and flowers in bloom, wildlife, local people enjoying spending time in our parks: the possibilities are endless!

Now’s your chance to give Downham’s The Howdale, The Willows and Memorial Playing Fields the recognition they deserve. And not forgetting the many parks and playing fields in the surrounding villages!
