Hundreds of great photos again this year and it has been impossible to post them all. So we have decided to set up a Flickr page where all the photos go and can been seen at their best. The link is https://www.flickr.com/photos/149401448@N03/? Only a few hundred have been added so far and many more to be added shortly. Also we will get round to naming them at some stage and will look at previous years to also post on Flickr.
