Here’s a link to the second part of this preview looking ahead to the final part of the year.
January – Crowds take advantage of recent snowfall sledging down the hilly entrance pathways of the Forest Recreation Ground ,while a monument to soldiers who fought the Boer War looms large in the distance.
February – The brightly lit spire of St Barnabas’ Cathedral is framed by nearby trees , one of which fittingly lit by a sodium lamp against the deep blue night sky .
March – Blustery snowfall on St Patrick’s Day didn’t dampen the enthusiasm of those attending with flags being displayed and held proudly aloft , with the Left Lion watching on.
April – Reflections of rain on paving slabs of Old Market Square frame up and highlight the Council House with its curved archways and brightly lit façade.
May – Broadgate Park , Beeston – a metal sculpture by Hilary Cartmel tells the story of a vibrant and energetic town , while two children play on in the background.
June – From one side of the River Trent to the other : Clifton Hall is wonderfully highlighted by late evening sunshine as seen from playing fields near to Beeston Rylands , with the Trent basin in between .
