Tis the season for goodwill to all men – so in that spirit we bring you this selection box of festive photos which our camera club members have kindly shared with us.

There are some Christmas crackers here thanks to some of the 730-plus people in our group on Facebook giving the gift of their photography.

We hope these images give your Christmas cheer levels a boost as the big day approaches.

Our camera club invites people to share their best photos from around the area, as well as talk to fellow photographers, join in projects and enter our competitions.

If you’re an enthusiastic amateur snapper, you can request to join the group after searching for News Shopper Camera Club on Facebook or going to https://www.facebook.com/groups/414045142314165/

Once accepted, you’ll be able to add your pictures to the group, join in the conversation and contests and also possibly have some of your photos used here in the newspaper or on our website.

December’s competition theme is ‘funny nature’ – we’re looking to see photos of animals being hilarious and our favourite picture at the end of the month will win one photographers our £50 prize.

We also hoping see lots more of members’ wonderful Christmas photos.
