When villagers putting together the Downland Calendar 2017 asked Fulking residents to send in their favourite photos, we received over 250 stunning images of Fulking and the South Downs, including landscapes, flora, fauna and village life. This slideshow video features a selection of those images, a real testament to the beautiful place we live in. You can view it by clicking the play button below (18:47 running time).

A reminder that a group of villagers are hoping to put together a photographic Downland Village Calendar for 2017. The content will be high-quality photos of Fulking and nearby villages featuring local landscapes, the South Downs in all seasons, weather, buildings (e.g., churches) and possibly wildlife and livestock. Photographs should be in landscape format (i.e., wide rather than tall) with minimum pixel dimensions of 2500 x 1700. The response so far has been truly inspiring but we want the range to be as wide as possible, so please send your favourite Downland photos to firstname.lastname@example.org by the end of May at the latest. Also send us a telephone number so we can contact you. Money raised from the calendar will go to help the village.
