THIS month we asked our camera club members to show off what they love about Basingstoke for the theme ‘hometown pride’.

The theme got members thinking about what they love the most in Basingstoke and the surrounding area, and coming out on top seemed to be Eastrop Park, with a number of photographers snapping the town centre location.

Do you have a stunning photo you would like to share with us? You can post it in the camera club's group once you have joined and you might be lucky enough to see your photograph in the paper, or on our social media pages including Facebook and Instagram. 

It is free and easy for anyone to join the camera club and a great way to share your amazing photos with others. Simply search for Basingstoke Gazette Camera Club on Facebook and click to join and you will be free to share with others in the group.
