Thank you for voting if you did. We have now closed the vote and you have chosen a favourite so we are delighted to announce that Paul Hensman,who took this lovely photo (above) of his family at play while out on the river Thames- is the lucky winner.
Well done Paul-we will be in touch to arrange your Thames cruise.

And congratulations too for Linda Walters our runner up for her lovely photo of a Thames sunset (above)

A good news story."This year, my 7-year-old son and I are completing the Oxford Canal Walk to raise money for the World Wildlife Fund So far, we've raised £375...

..The distance is about 150 kms .....I've managed to keep my son motivated by the idea of completing the entire route and the thought that he'll be able to donate a sum of money to help animals around the world, 

You can read our story here, on our JustGiving page. Many thanks for your support....Regards,
