Rose snaps up a prize

by Sandra Smith

During a stroll along Wendover canal one day last November, the winter sun broke through the mist, a moment Rose Gamble decided to capture on her iPhone.

Little did she know that, months later, the public would vote her composition the winner of this year’s Wendover Community Library Photography Competition. Rose (pictured above) said: ‘I live nearby and regularly walk along the canal. I hadn’t entered the competition before but was encouraged to do so.’

At a small presentation in The King and Queen, sponsors of the competition which continues to grow in popularity, Rose was given a voucher and calendar. Her framed picture will be on display in the pub until Christmas, when it will be relocated to the library.

Copies of the calendar, which includes photographs by other local entrants, are now available to buy (£7.50) in Wendover Community Library. Cash from sales will go towards improving the library. Entries are now being accepted for next year’s competition.
