BLOG – Good Luck to Race for Life Runners!

Happy Friday everyone! It’s a gorgeous sunny day and it looks like we might be in for the same throughout the weekend – we hope you’ve got a BBQ or two planned! Or otherwise are getting out in the sunshine. There’s plenty to do!

Photo Competition

This is your weekly reminder that we are taking submissions for our Oakley Vale Photo Competition! We want to thank everyone for the influx of photos we have had in the last week. Some of the entries have been brilliant – proving that we’ve got some amazing budding photographers in the area! The swans in and around the lake appear to be a particular favourite!


Don’t forget that you can enter yourself by following this link and sending us your snaps – whether they’re from the bank holiday recently passed; or you get snapping over the weekend! We’d love to see what you’ve got.

If you’re taking part we would love to hear about your stories or see your pictures on the day – send them to us on Facebook or Twitter and we’ll do our best to share them!
