Photographs needed for new Town Council Website

Wilmslow Town Council (WTC) is asking residents for their best photographs of Wilmslow to use on the Town Council’s new website. The existing website for the council looks dated, is difficult to maintain and is not mobile compatible. Therefore, it is being revamped to give its users a much better experience of the town and its civic activities. The council would also like to use new images of the town too and has called on its residents to send them images of the town that they are happy to be used on the site. The images should be: Of Wilmslow - its places, buildings or events. Free from any copyright or royalty for the image to be used by WTC. Have the permission of anyone identifiable within that their image can be used. Pictures should be sent to and the most suitable ones will be used in the new web site. Cllr Mark Goldsmith said “When I became a council member just over a year ago, it was clear that the web site needed updating. I am therefore grateful to Cllr Angela McPake, along with Matthew Jackson, the Town Clerk who have helped make this project happen. We are now hoping residents send us some great images of the town to really compliment the new web site design. However, if we have to commission photography ourselves, then the pictures will all be of Wilmslow in January when it is quiet and not looking at its best. So, to avoid this, please send us your images of the town in full bloom or during many of its vibrant events throughout the year.” There are no prizes for any images used, just the satisfaction of seeing your pictures highlight the town to local residents and a surprisingly high number of global visitors too. It is hoped that, if a good selection of high quality images are sent in, the Town Council will avoid the need to incur the additional costs of a professional photographer. It is planned for the new web site to be operational in April 2018.
