We officially launch our 2016 Calendar showcasing your photographs of the Greenway

Last year we asked you to send in your pictures of the Connswater Community Greenway for our 2016 Calendar competition in association with Connswater Shopping Centre and Retail Park, and we were so pleased with the response!

On Friday 15th January we launched the Connswater Community Greenway Calendar 2016 at Connswater Shopping Centre with the winners of the 2016 Calendar Competition - as voted by you!

Iain Gregory took first place with his Kingfisher photographer which was captured in Orangefield Park and received a £100 Connswater Shopping Centre Voucher. In second place was Gerry McNally with his Reflections of Victoria Park photograph and received a £80 Connswater Shopping Centre voucher. In third place was Vera Gilmore with her photograph of the Swans in Victoria Park and she received a £50 Connswater Shopping Centre voucher.

All the winning photographs feature in the Connswater Community Greenway 2016 Calendar with the winning photograph taking pride of place on the cover of the Calendar. In fact, most of the photographs within the Calendar have been taken by the public who use the Greenway day to day and showcase the wonderful wildlife, nature and places on offer.

The Calendars are available in an At A Glance version and a month by month version. You can pick up a copy of the Calendar by dropping in to the EastSide Partnership Office (Connswater Community Greenway Headquarters between Monday – Friday, 9am -5pm (closed 1pm - 2pm for lunch). Please note there are only limited copies and once they are gone they are gone.  You can also download the Calendars here.

We were so pleased with the response to the competition so thank you to everyone who entered their pictures. Thanks again to Connswater Shopping Centre and Retail Park for supporting this competition.

We will be opening our 2017 Calendar Competition for entries later this year so keep snapping!
