New-look website and June events!

Happy Friday everyone, and happy bank holiday! It looks like we could be set for a beautiful long weekend of weather, and if you’re out and about in Oakley Vale we want to see your pics!

Why? Well you might’ve seen that we have just launched some new web pages we’ve been working away on behind the scenes for a few months. We detailed them a bit in our last blog post, but here’s a reminder:

Picture of the Month – Oakley Vale and its surroundings have some areas of outstanding beauty, perfect for walks, and made even better by the changing seasons throughout the year. We wanted to showcase this and what better way than through the cameras of local residents! On this page you can submit your photos of Oakley Vale into our Picture of the Month competition. People will be able to vote on the pictures submitted and the winner will feature on our website and become our cover photo on our Facebook & Twitter for the next month!

I love it here… – This page is dedicated to the people who make Oakley Vale what it is – the local residents, businesses and institutions. It features profiles of local people talking about what brought them to Oakley Vale, why they love it and how they’d describe the community in 5 words. We already have a selection of profiles from local people, but we’re looking for residents to contribute all the time so send us an email or message on social media to see the questions and be a part of our site!

So if you’re out this weekend get snapping and submit your pictures – from your iPhone, or camera, whatever it may be!
