The residents of Old Buckenham have just completed a 12 month project to capture a photograph of their village on every day of 2015.

The challenge began on New Year's Day 2015 and drew to a close last Thursday, on New Year's Eve, with a fitting shot of a sunset over the village sign.

In between, the images have included a vast array of regular events, such as nativity plays, as well as landscape shots, and pictures of some of the village's inhabitants.

Steve Milner, who has been involved with organising the 365 project since it started, said: '365 days ago on a cold damp new years day a group of us met at All Saints Church to set out on a journey throughout 2015 by recording the very best of Old Buckenham through the medium of photography. We have successfully taken an image every day to celebrate our lovely village.

'What has amazed me is how our younger residents have embraced the project and how we have been treated to some fantastic images taken from a view point that we frequently miss.'

Now, an exhibition will be held to celebrate the achievement, while the full collection of photographs would be showcased in some kind of permanent display.

'I believe it has been a fantastic year and we have a permanent record of it, so it will truly be a year that we will not forget', he added.

Mr Milner thanked Roger Peacock, Ron Brewer and Ian Anderson for their help.
