World Photography Day – A snapshot of Oakley Vale

Welcome back everyone for our August blog post! As we move further into the gradual easing of lockdown measures, for many of us this brings longed-for opportunities like seeing friends and family, playing sports, heading to the pub, or even going shopping.

While these changes are happy and exciting ones, for many of us this is still an uncertain and difficult period. We just wanted to say a quick thank you to our amazing community for staying safe, enjoying yourselves responsibly and respecting other members of the community.

Now this month, in honour of World Photography Day on the 19th August, we’d like to give you a snapshot of Oakley Vale and highlight a few things we thought were worth shouting about. We hope you enjoy more of the summer sun this month and remember, stay safe!

We want your views – a survey for Oakley Vale

We have been overwhelmed by the number of responses we have received from our local residents about what should be included in the new local centre. With that being said, we want even more people to share their ideas – we’d really appreciate a wide range of thoughts!

You can find the online survey here:

If you haven’t already, please do share this with friends, family and colleagues around Oakley Vale. Plus, remember to keep an eye on our website and social media channels for the latest updates about the local centre.

Our latest photo competition

In our July blog, we showcased a few of the entries we have received so far in our latest photo competition and announced our deadline of 31st July. Well, we are pleased to tell you that in honour of World Photography Day this month, we have extended our deadline until Wednesday 5th August to give you once last chance at winning £50!

In the wake of COVID-19, the theme for our latest competition is Life in Lockdown. We want to see your best, funniest, most innovative pics so get snapping!

You can submit your photos on the competition page here.

Isolated Moments

With many events across the country sadly still unable to go ahead, an increasing number of Corby residents have turned to something a little different to keep themselves entertained in lockdown.

Isolated Moments is a series of online workshops, prompts and tutorials to keep spirits buoyed and creativity alive during COVID-19 social isolating and quarantining measures. Activities are suitable for children and adults and range from basic drawing to technological experiments. There is a new activity each week! You can find out more details on the Love Corby website here.

All that is left to say is that we hope everyone has a great August, and continues to stay safe and well. See you in September!
