Snapshot 2021

In 2011 Helmdon won Northamptonshire Best Village, and with the prize money Helmdon Parish Council ran a project recording the essence of the village in photographs.

Now, ten years on, the parish council has repeated the project, which became known as "Snapshot".

Snapshot 2021 recorded "An Ordinary Week in an Ordinary Village" with villagers taking photographs between 11 November 2021 and 18 November 2021. It demonstrated that Helmdon, or at least the people of Helmdon, are anything but ordinary. Helmdon is not the prettiest village in Northamptonshire, nor the best-served by local amenities or natural resources, yet its people have kept it a vibrant and wonderful place to live. This photograph project captures the essence of Helmdon.

The Snapshot Project Team has selected the best photos and has laid them out in a quality 55-page photobook.

The photobook will be on sale from now until noon on 15 September 2022 at the special price of £29.99. Thereafter, the books will be available for £49.99 until 31 December 2022. To order your copy, fill in the form below. A bulk order will be placed on 15 September and delivery is expected within 2 - 3 weeks.
