Buckingham Photography and Art Competition Winners
For the second year in a row, we are pleased to announce that the Buckingham calendar is available to purchase from the Tourist Information Centre in The Old Gaol.
This year we opened the competition up to artwork as well at photography and we were blown away by the talent that Buckingham has to offer. It was very difficult to choose the 12 winners to be included, but with a good range of images from all the seasons, the calendar would be a great addition to your wall.
Councillor Geraldine Collins – Buckingham Town Mayor – said, “I always look forward to seeing the Buckingham calendar. This year as always it is a great reflection of our local area. I was thrilled to see the photographs and artwork entries for this year. thank you to our wonderfully talented community, and to those who work with them to bring this together.”

Have you had a look at our new national winter learning programme yet?
From watercolour sessions to a poetry competition to online events, there’s a lot to choose from. These new initiatives will be running alongside our ongoing initiatives, such as u3a eye, so there’s lots of ways to keep learning this winter.

I hope this wet Thursday morning finds you all well. Having spoken to
people in the north east yesterday I realised how lucky we are to be
living in the middle of England.
I have called it Big news-changes this week; so here goes. I have made
the decision to move down south to where my daughter lives and have been
in the process of buying a house down there for several weeks. Fingers
crossed I have now sold mine, so feel I really might get there. I
actually made the decision to go before Xmas last year and had my house
on the market in Feb, but then Covid struck, so I had to remove it
before the lockdown, and then been trying again since June. So this is
where you all come in. Is there someone out there who would like to
take over Theatre Outings? I think it is as much work as you make it,
i.e. the more shows you book the more work. At the moment it is very
easy as obviously nothing is happening. ATG are not opening their
theatres before the end of November. (Their latest optimistic date).
Living in a village is not a limitation as you have all got very good at
sending stamped addressed envelopes etc. I have thoroughly enjoyed
meeting so many of you and making new friends.
