      Photography exhibition

In Spring 2012 Thorncombe Village Trust approached the local primary school, Thorncombe St. Mary’s, offering to sponsor an exhibition of photographs taken by the children.

The idea was eagerly taken up by the school, and the children were invited to take photos following the theme of ‘My Village’ - the idea was to see Thorncombe through a child’s eyes.

We mounted the exhibition in May 2012 in the Village Hall Community Room, where it stayed for a while before moving to the school hall. The exhibition coincided with our Spring Plant Sale, and attracted some very positive comments.

Altogether it was a highly successful enterprise, and it was lovely to see how excited the children and their families were to see their work up on the wall. The standard of the photography was high with an interesting range of subjects. We hope to revisit this idea in the future.
