Lets make Bridge 80 Famous

I've just been onto the IWA calendar to vote for my favourite photos for the next IWA calendar — one of our moorers has had his photo of our bridge — Bridge 80 (Bennett's Bridge) short listed. It's really exciting to see such a fantastic photo of somewhere you know so well! If you want to vote you can click on this link, click on "winter" and vote for it!
