Marvellous Manningham – a Photo Walk on Saturday

I’ve been working with three churches in the area to look at communcations – particularly online. The aim is to identify and master appropriate technology and to get great stories out into the public domain. Of course there’s no point in having a communications platform if there is no content – content is king, as they say.

So the end game is not simply to have a facebook account and a website, but also to have a passion for making and reflecting stories.

St Paul’s Church is Manningham has devised a community photo walk which will bring together people who perhaps wouldn’t ordinarily talk with one another to see the community through each other’s lenses – literally.



I hope there will be some discussion about the nature of the community, some thought provoking photos and some new friendships. Of course there will some great content for the website.

Saturday 1 June, 12 noon

Join us on a short walk to take photos that illustrate signs of hope in
Manningham. Meet in St Paul’s church hall, Church St (behind the Library)
for lunch (bring your own food but drinks are provided) and a chat with
photographer and media producer, Mark Waddington.

Choose one of the prearranged walks and return half an hour later to St
Paul’s to look at the first results. The best photo will be chosen by Manningham Parish Council and a selection
will be displayed in the church hall and on the parish website.
