Whitchurch is in the process of producing a Neighbourhood Plan as well as a Community Plan, as voted for by a high proportion of residents.

Our chairperson is Keith Armour who may be contacted on info.whitchurchplan@gmail.com


COMING SOON – TWO DATES FOR RESIDENTS TO VISIT OUR PUBLIC CONSULTATION, hopefully at the end of July 2021 in St John’s Hall.  You will be able to chat with us and see all the work we have been doing.

REGULAR UPDATES WILL BE GIVEN BELOW, BUT FIRST OF ALL HERE ARE THE DETAILS OF THE SUMMER 2021 PHOTOGRAPHIC COMPETITION WE ARE RUNNING:

==========================================================================================

Competition time!

 An unusual Neighbourhood Plan update this month, we are launching a competition.

For both the Neighbourhood Plan and the Community Plan we need photographs of the village showing all aspects of Whitchurch. What better way to get great photos than to ask the residents of Whitchurch? The competition is open now and closes on Saturday July 31st.

There are 12 categories and the best photograph in each category will feature on a Whitchurch calendar.

We hope the calendar will be on sale in the Autumn and any profits raised will be used for the good of the village. Further details will come later in the year.

Conditions of entry

* there must be no copyright over the image

* photographs of identifiable people must not be submitted 

* you are happy for the image to be used

* entries must come from current residents of Whitchurch 

* photographs can be taken now or maybe ones you have taken previously.

Categories are as follows:

 2 from Whitchurch School pupils – Rachel Mobbs, Headteacher, will be briefing the children on

these categories

 18 and under

 Whitchurch village life

 Whitchurch animals – including your very own photogenic Whitchurch pets!

 Whitchurch views

 Whitchurch plant life – from meadows to your favourite tree

 Whitchurch in summer

 Whitchurch gardens

 Whitchurch at dawn

 Whitchurch at dusk

 Whitchurch buildings

Judging will take place over the summer and the winners will be announced in the October edition of Whitchurch News and we also hope to include a wide selection of entries on the Village website.

Photographs should be saved under your name, surname and initial, e.g. SmithF, and should be sent to whitchurchphotocomp@gmail.com and be landscape (do not use the new iPhone portrait setting) please, include your name, address and the category/categories you are entering. If entering the “18 and under category” please give your age.

We can’t wait to see your entries!
