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.
Ten years later, in 2021, the parish council 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 selected the best photos and laid them out in a quality 55-page photobook.
The photobook is being sold to residents at the special price of £29.99 until 31 October 2022, and thereafter is still available to order for £49.99 until 31 December 2022. To order your copy, fill in the form below.
