RECENTLY discovered pictures of Ellington and Grafham will be on display at Ellington Village Hall on Sunday, September 30.

The free exhibition is being presented by the the Grafham Wildlife and Conservation Group, which has won the British Trust for Conservation Volunteers regional Green Heroes award for the past two years.

The group of volunteers maintains woodland, including Brampton Wood and has run several similar photographic exhibitions.

Sam Malt, the group founder, said: "When we started this project, we had no idea it would be so popular. We are always looking for more photos of Grafham, Ellington and the surrounding villages. So, if anyone has any pictures that we can copy, please get in touch, or see me on the day."
