Aerial photography of your property – an opportunity not to be missed!

With all the rain this year I hope your garden is looking healthy and verdant, or maybe lockdown has been the opportunity get that shed mended or even move house.  Whatever the reason, now might be the time to have some wonderful images done of your property.  One of our supporters, Colin de Chair (a Norfolk-based retired professional photographer) has been taking aerial photographs with a drone. Colin is kindly offering us the opportunity of doing his drone photography in aid of Norfolk Churches Trust, and we need the donations ever more as the volume of churches needing help (and having less chances of alternative fundraising) is increasing.My children had a jigsaw puzzle made from one of Colin’s photos for my Christmas present.  The house was easy, the lawn VERY tricky.  I might suggest some tablemats this year …

The deal is that he will come round and take 6 or 7 photographs for you with the drone, which produces high quality pictures able to produce prints of up to A2 size.  He will send the images to you via email free of charge.  Should you require actual or additional prints, you could get these done online at places like BonusPrint or Photobox  (or if you are pushed, Colin is willing to help out).  All images taken for you will be treated confidentially and be for your use only.
In exchange you need to
