Starting on Monday the 16th of November for 7 days we will email you a prompt to ‘find’ something and photograph it when you are out and about on your walks, cycles, runs etc…

For example on Wednesday 18th November the prompt will be ‘something red’ – maybe your photograph would be a letter box or a poppy or your red trainers!
