[21 SEP 98] WARWICKSHIRE WILDLIFE TRUST PRESS RELEASE
Happy Snappers

The Jigsaw project has had photos flooding in from all over the county including snaps of swans, foxes, butterflies, Spring blossom and Autumn frosts.

Jigsaw is a new initiative from Warwickshire Wildlife Trust's Community Project, and is supported by Severn Trent Water. Jigsaw aims to build a photographic record of Warwickshire in the late 20th century showing the places that its people hold important. The project is inviting people throughout Coventry, Solihull and Warwickshire to send in photographs of favourite or distinctive places in the area, so that artists at the Trust can make a brand new map of this area, to be displayed in the new Brandon Marsh Visitor Centre. Already people are out and about across the county clicking away but more photos are needed.

Photographs may be landscapes, buildings or wildlife, but they should be of special or valued places, as identified by local people. The Trust's Community &, Education Manager, Ms Chris Thomas said, "For many years the Trust has recognised how much people value their own local patch. Jigsaw aims to get these local places a higher profile, so that features that are important to people throughout Warwickshire, Coventry and Solihull can be included in our giant pictorial map. All sorts of things might be included such as distinctive trees in the landscape, gargoyles on a church or even the local fox."

The Trust is keen to involve residents groups, Parish Councils and specialist groups such as photographic clubs so that there is a good choice of photographs for them to select from when building up the map. Photographs should be colour and sent in as prints. In order to standardise the colour quality, the Trust is encouraging people to use Fuji film and can supply a free film for people registering with the Jigsaw project.

A registration form is available from the new Brandon Marsh Visitor Centre, or a stamped addressed envelope can be sent to: Jigsaw, Warwickshire Wildlife Trust, Brandon Lane, Coventry CV3 3GW. The Trust is asking for all photographs to be sent in by the end of October, so that the finished map can be on display by Christmas.
