This competition closed for entries at midnight, sunday 28th July. Winners will be contacted by Friday 2nd August... Good Luck!

We Want to See Your West Country Holiday Pics! The theme for our next Notes & Stories Journal is 'colour' so enter your quirky, colourful holiday pics that describe your time in the South West...

Submit a picture of anything you like - a West Country holiday snap capturing the children in their wellies, a carefully crafted landscape of milky white sand against the azure blue sea, or a drawing inspired by your time in the West Country.
