KING’S Ely Senior student Alice Edwards was a winner in this year’s ‘Pauline’s Swamp Photography Competition’.
Alice, who is in Year 11 and studying GCSE Photography, won the top prize with her striking and meaningful image, ‘Grass from the Ground’.
Pauline’s Swamp is located in Burwell, near Cambridge. Parish records of the swamp date back to around 1805 and in 2007, the beauty spot was established as a resource for the Parish.
The swamp came into the possession of the Hawes family in 1992, latterly being looked after by Mr Paul Hawes, who kindly donated it in a ‘deed of trust’ to Burwell Parish Council in 2007 in memory of his wife.
A photography competition is held each year to tie in with the swamp’s annual autumn activity and open day, which took place on the first Sunday in September.
