A Day in the Life of the Vale - in association with

WITH the Journal’s 150th anniversary year reaching its climax in less than a month, it is time to take a look at some wonderful images from a summer project, where readers snapped A Day in the Life of the Vale.

The picture-perfect project was one of several events organised as part of our anniversary year and saw more than 50 readers given a disposable camera by Jessops to catalogue their day through photographs.

The big day was August Bank Holiday, August 31 and whether it was pictures of a working day, a day out or just a quiet, relaxing day in with the family, the photographs produced gave an intriguing insight into how our readers spent their 24 hours.

Amongst the amateur photographers for the day were West Worcestershire MP Harriett Baldwin, Pershore Mayor Chris Parsons and Evesham town councillor Andrew Dyke.

A number of snappers were taking part in the event for the second time as the Journal ran its first Day in the Life project ten years ago at the turn of the millennium. The results of this can still be viewed by clicking here

Anyone who has not already picked up their CD containing photographs taken as part of the project can do so now from Jessops on Bridge Street, Evesham.

The Day in the Life project was not the only way we celebrated the momentous milestone of 150 years; with a DVD looking at life in Evesham over the past century and a half - The Way We Were in Evesham - produced, a campaign to raise £15,000 for St Richards Hospice launched and an exhibition held at The Almonry Museum.
