CCTV at the Recreation Ground


There have been a number of acts of vandalism carried out on the play equipment located within the recreation ground.  As a result the police are now involved and CCTV cameras have been installed.  Anyone seeing anything suspicious should contact the police on 101 (the police non-emergency number)

Tunstead Amateur Photographic Competition

We will be holding a competition to find the 12 best photos of the village. The winning photographs will be featured in the village 2016 calendar which will go on sale in December (proceeds to go to the Village Hall and Recreation Ground funds)


We are looking for photographs of the village under the theme of  ‘Village Life’.  You can enter as many photographs as you wish and the cost of entry is £1.00 per photograph.

The winning photo will be allocated to the cover as well as a month within the calendar

The final date for entries is the 1st October 2015, which means that you have until then to take stunning photos of the village at different times of the year

So if you have any photographs of Tunstead that you think would be suitable for the calendar  or are looking for an excuse to use the new camera you had for Christmas, now is your chance.

Send your entries together with entry fee to:-  Photographic competition, Marjon, Market Street, Tunstead

Please remember to include your contact details with your entry
