We love to receive your photos of the local area, to share with our readers.
You decide what to photograph - whether it's a special occasion, a local landmark, or just something or somewhere that has caught your eye.
You can see previous galleries here.
If you would like to send us a photo or photos, please contact us by email. Or, you can post them on our Facebook page and we will pick them up from there. Photos must be a minimum of 500 pixels wide.
When a new photo is added, it will be placed at the top of the article, which will be boosted so that it appears in 'Latest' on the home-page. That way you will know there is at least one new photo in a gallery, possibly more, to delight your eyes.
