Update 11 June 2020

Following comments received that with the current 'Lock-down' constraints in place it might not be possible to collect 'On Holiday' photos, the theme has been expanded to include an additional dimension of 'Puppy Time' . 


Hopefully Members will submit their favourite holiday AND / OR puppy photos to this theme, and that we'll have as good an entry for this category as usual!
