Burgemeester John Kingsbury heeft op 17 juli de officiële opening verricht in de bibliotheek van Woking. Daarna konden de burgers van Woking van de fototentoonstelling genieten. Ook hier was men erg enthousiast over de hoge kwaliteit van de tentoongestelde foto's.

Vanaf maandag 14 augustus is de tentoonstelling een maand te zien in Óbuda, Hongarije.

In March, photographers from Amstelveen in the Netherlands and Óbuda-Békásmegyer in Hungary also entered their photographs into the competition.

There were three main categories — Older People, In and Around the House and Family Dreams. A keen photographer, Jim submitted a number of photos. His winning entry featured in the Family Dreams category.

Since taking the photos, Jim has become visually impaired and was unable to accept the main prize of a visit to Amstelveen. He continues to take pictures with help from members of his family.

For information about the twinning association contact 01483 743001 or e-mail marion.baddeley@woking.gov.uk.

An exhibition of all the entries was held at Woking library last month.
