New Photo Competition

Hopefully you will have noticed that we have steadily been improving our website, to make it a more attractive, informative and interesting place to browse. In the interest of keeping our homepage fresh, we would love to update our image slider with a new picture each month, and where better to look than our wonderful community? We always love seeing your pictures, videos and stories about the canal, but now there's a formal competition, with the winner each month being showcased on our homepage.

We're looking for landscape photos around the canal, including local flora and fauna, boats on the water, or lovely people enjoying the towpaths. Basically, as long as your capturing something in or around the canal, we'd love to see it. If you have a photo you would like to be entered, please send it to by the last Wednesday of the calendar month. By sending your photo to this inbox, you give consent for WBCT to use your image on it's website and social media. You are welcome to send multiple entries (within reason..), but remember, it's a monthly competition - pace yourself!

We may occasionally put a preferred theme out (e.g. Christmas for our December photo) so make sure to keep an eye on the blog and Facebook for these. The last Wednesday of July is next week, so get your first entries in quick!
