2013 & 2014 Photographs
For the past two years we have been delighted to welcome Steve Jack as our professional photographer and we have now posted a selection of his images. (See Main Menu)
We have also added a separate section featuring scenes from the morning processions, to offer a real taste of a truly great day! These were taken by an old friend of the contest Nigel Philp from Cornwall.
