A beautiful view of St Giles Tower in Autumn, taken by Angharad Beale, has been judged to be the best entry in our Wonders of Wrexham 2018 Calendar Competition.

The photo shows the beautiful tower surrounded by Autumn colours as the leaves on the trees in the area began to die down.

There’s all the red, gold and brown that you would expect to see on a beautiful September day set against a background of clear blue skies.


“One of the best views n Wrexham town centre”

Angharad has called her photo the “school run” and it’s clear she gets one of the best views in Wrexham town centre as she makes her way to work.

On hearing of her win Angharad said: “I’m delighted to have won the September competition. Wrexham has some very beautiful buildings, views and landscapes that should be recognised in this way. There’s only one month to go to get your photo in the Calendar so keep snapping and entering.”

The Wonders of Wrexham 2018 Calendar Competition was launched at the beginning of November last year following the news that North Wales is ranked fourth in the world of regions to visit. Staff at the time thought it only right that Wrexham celebrated its place in the world with a snapshot record of Wrexham throughout the year.

The aim of the competition is to find the best photograph taken by an amateur photographer which captures the essence of the month of entry. Entries are now invited for October – the last remaining spot in the Calendar. The winner will be announced early November.

All the winning photographs will be featured in the Calendar.

There’s no prize but all 12 winners will receive copies of the Wonders of Wrexham 2018 calendar when it is produced next month. Their photo, name and description of where the photo was taken will be alongside each photo.

All profits from the sale of the calendar will be donated to the Mayor’s chosen charities.

Entries can be of anywhere in the County Borough taken during October 2107.

Photos should be submitted via email, full resolution preferred, to calendar@wrexham.gov.uk.
