Winter is now officially here – and we want to share your photos of the season here on Lowton & Golborne News.
We had some really fantastic images of Autumn sent in by you over the past few months – with everything from sunrise to sunset, rainbows to berries, rivers to trees being captured on camera.
Now we’d love to see your photographs of winter in Lowton and Golborne and we’ll be sharing them right here, and on our social media accounts in the coming weeks and months.
Send your photos to us: email@example.com, letting us know who took it, and where.
Here are some of our favourites so far:

Veronica Vancalsteren – back garden in Platt Bridge
Veronica was born and grew up in Golborne and regularly visits her family here – so when she sent us this lovely picture of her back garden in Platt Bridge, where she now lives, we were happy to accept her into our Winter Photo Challenge. We particularly like the way the snow highlights all the details of her tree.
Gill Irving – Snowy fun on her family’s annual Christmas walk on Lowton Moss
Gill explained in her email to us that the walk on Lowton Moss is something her family enjoy every year. Their best year, she says, they had 32 friends and family on the walk. Sadly this year, due to restrictions, it was just the six of them… and the dog, of course! It still looks like they had lots of fun…

How do I take part in the Winter Photo Challenge?
You don’t need to be a professional photographer, have any specialist equipment, experience or training. An image snapped on your smartphone is just fine!
Your photo could be of a favourite place in Lowton or Golborne, it could be taken in your garden, it might even be a closeup image of something that looks interesting. That’s completely up to you!
Simply send us your photo to firstname.lastname@example.org and don’t forget to let us know who took it, and where.
We can’t wait to see your photos!
