Whole section on Photographs
There are now Photographic Sections on the Village Day, Modern Photos of Stratton and Old Photos of Stratton. They can be accessed from the Menu on the left of each page. The old Photos were lent for copying by Alan Norris. There must be many of you who have old photos of Stratton - please loan them briefly so that they may be copied and so we can build up a library on the site - you will get the originals back in their original condition as they will just be copied electronically. Anyone who would like to submit modern photos may also do so! Send me an email by clicking here!- webmaster, Malcolm Daniels

Please let me know about events that you are planning so that they can be featured on the website. This is your website, so without news it is very difficult to keep it interesting and alive!
