It was suggested that our next picture competition should be “Chocolate Box Thatch” which we thought was a great idea.

Following on from the Thatch and Gardens Picture competition and associated gallery it made a lot of sense to give everyone the opportunity to show us even more great pictures of thatched cottages.

Similar rules as before. See below for details.
