How to post more photos than the rules allow – use collages. You can combine several of your photos into a single collage photo by using this free (you need to provide email) online collage creation tool. It’s very easy to use, give it a try! https://www.fotor.com/create/collage/

Correcting flawed submissions: If you send an incorrect submission, or you forget to include the photos, please send in a new, full corrected submission and ask me to ignore the previous, incorrect submission. I am too busy to keep track of partial submissions in different emails and patch them together. Your cooperation is appreciated.

The Nerja Players will present ‘Gaslight’ next Tuesday:
Bella moves into a not-so-fashionable part of Victorian London with her new husband. However, seemingly he has a secret that he will do anything to protect, even if it means driving his wife insane. With time, she begins to notice strange goings on: missing pictures, strange footsteps in the night and gaslights that dim without being touched. As she fights to retain her sanity, her new husband’s intentions come into question….
The Nerja Players will present a dramatised reading of this Victorian thriller on Tuesday, 18th February, 7.00 pm at The Nerja Bridge Club at the top of C/Castilla Perez. For further details please see our website: https://www.thenerjaplayers.com/
