August Be Active Photo Competition Winners!
Did you see the competition entries we had on our Facebook page?
They were great! It has been a difficult choice but our team of judges did come up with two winners and they are Bruce Meiklejohn with his kids running like the clappers on St. Cyrus Beach and Fiona Carr with a photo of a beautifully held Tae Kwondo pose on a bail of straw overlooking Dunnottar Castle.
We have been delighted by the so many different ways you get active and the wonderful places Kincardine and Mearns has to offer.
Here are the winning photos.
