There were 45 photos submitted for the 2017 Pigeon Post Photo competition from 18 Seniors and 7 Juniors. The judge, Frances Crickmore, said she found it very difficult to select the winners.

This is the second year we have held this competition and this year attracted more entries than before. Frances Crickmore was so impressed by the number and quality of the submitted pictures that she has offered to run a kind of photographic tutorial group for young people on her farm in Flixton some time next year if there is a enough interest.
