Newport’s photography competition features in charity calendar

Written on October 18, 2021

The winners of Newport’s photography competition were announced last week and the winning pictures will feature in the town calendar.

Copies of the calendar were awarded to the 2 winners, Mr Geoff Chalcroft of Daniels Cross and Mr Les Colbert by Newport’s mayor, Councillor Lyn Fowler, where the best ones would feature in the charity calendar.

Councillor Fowler said it was difficult to choose between the best photos which showed the essence of Newport.

“Mr Chalcroft’s photo was awarded first prize and represents June while Mr Colbert’s won second prize representing April, July, October and November with four photos.

Third prize winner, Mr Michael Wincott of Hawkstone Avenue, had two photos chosen, May and August.

The calendars are now on sale now from the Guildhall for £9.99 and all profits will be donated to the Newport X-ray appeal.
