To add a finishing touch to the recent refurbishment of Southam office, the staff have searched unsuccessfully for some suitable local photographs/artwork to decorate the walls. Other than the Francis Frith Collections, Jennifer and her team have been unable to find anything suitable. So they decided to invite the students from Southam College to enter a competition and submit photographs of the town and surrounding villages. Branch manager Jennifer Clark said: "

Southam College have both GCSE and A level Photography students and we thought they would enjoy the challenge and produce some stunning results for us. However, the gauntlet has been thrown down to all the year groups and we hope to have lots of artistic entries. We will be offering a small prize to the winner(s) whose photographs will be displayed here in the office."

Watch this space for the next stage.
