Photo Competition Extension & Spirit of Corby Awards

Happy Friday everyone,

Your blog his week focuses on a couple of elements – as well as a great selection of events happening this weekend!

Photo Competition – Extension! 

As you may have noted – our Photo Competition was due to end this week. We want to thank all those who took part in submitting so far. However, we had a problem with some further advertising and outreach so have decided to extend the deadline a little further – to ensure everyone gets a chance to submit!

Entries for the competition will now close on Monday 8th October. You can submit your photo’s free and easily on the Oakley Vale website here:

Or by submitting to our Facebook or Twitter pages that both have the same handle ‘@youroakleyvale’.

Spirit of Corby Awards – VIDEO

Just earlier today, we had a post on our timeline by friend of Oakley Vale, Paul Balmer – who is also the Chair of the Oakley Vale Community Association!

The post was a great video about the Spirit of Corby Award – which showcases interviews with the winners of previous years and what the award means.

It also features comments about what Corby means to the people who live there.

It’s a great video and we have already shared it on our pages – but take a look at it here while you can!
