PICTURES taken by a keen photographer depicting scenes from around Assington have been turned into greetings cards.

Keith Egglestone, who has lived in the village for more than 30 years, has been capturing images of his surroundings for many years – and now a selection have gone on sale at The Farm Shop in The Street, Assington.

“I have been taking photographs of the village for some time,” he said. “A few people said I should do something in the way of cards for the village.

“I picked about 15 and sent them to 50 friends and family and asked them to choose. We got it down to a shortlist of eight, which I printed up.”

The original photographs, which show bluebells, Assington Mill and the church, have also gone on sale in Artisans Tea Room, next door to the shop.

“Ever since I left school, I’ve been interested in photography,” said Mr Egglestone, who has had a number of his photographs featured in our See it, Snap it, Send it feature.

“I think Assington is a nice village. Everybody goes past it and doesn’t really take much notice but there are some lovely spots.”
