Banff & Buchan MP Eilidh Whiteford was on hand recently to present prizes to the winners of a special photography contest.

Strichen Community Park challenged amateur photographers to snap the park looking at its best. The contest was a runaway success with visitors from as far afield as Australia submitting photographs via the Park’s Facebook page. More than 100 entries were submitted and on Saturday at the Park, the winners were revealed as Debbie Breese from New Aberdour for first and third prizes, with Lee-ann McLean of Inverallochy scooping second prize. Dr Whiteford, who presented the prizes to the lucky winners, said: “The Strichen Community Park is one of the real beauty spots in Banff & Buchan and has been increasingly popular in recent years. There were some beautiful shots of the park through all the seasons and the winning entries were really quite special. What a fantastic advert for the Park and for the North-east.”
