Milford on Sea Doorstep Photo Album: Update 1

Come on guys, I need your help please...

The Milford on Sea Doorstep Photo Album was started on Saturday 25th April 2020 to create a light-hearted album of Milford on Sea villagers on their doorstep during this Coronavirus crisis.

We are pleased to have received our first nine photos, but we need a lot more!

Please get involved, your photos bring the community together and will bring a smile to many battling through this difficult time. See how to do it below.

PS: As well as taking 'doorstep photos' on your walks and sending now, why not also take pictures of your neighbours at 'Clap for Carers' on Thursday? That would make some nice memories for us all share.

About The Milford on Sea Doorstep Photo Album

We thought it might be a nice idea to create a village record of people on their doorsteps by creating an album of photos taken by villagers whilst on their daily walks. This is something everyone can get involved with and enjoy seeing grow in the coming days and weeks.

The album is on Flickr for all to see and called:
Milford on Sea: Villagers on the Doorstep (Coronavirus time!) - please click here.

Please get involved, it will only take a few minutes of your time and the photos will give a lot of people in the village who may be lonely or struggling a bit of pleasure.

How it works:

When you are out for your normal walk; invite your family, neighbours and friends whose front door you might pass, to come to the doorstep and take a photo. (with their permission of course!) If you want to send your own photo, Selfies are accepted as long as your front door is in it.

Then, send the photos to:
david@milfordonsea.org and they will be added to the album for all to see.  

*Please also add the names of the people/family to the photo you send.

Please note:

  • You must have permission for photos sent to be added to the album.
  • Pictures must have a front door behind the people.
  • All people in photos must be happy. 
  • Funny doorstep photos or dressed up people welcomed! 
  • We do not want to people to walk further than they normally would to get a picture, we are all still on lockdown after all.
  • Please be careful that there is nothing that gives away the precise location of what may be vulnerable people. So perhaps be wary of including the house number in the photo.

NB: We have only just started, so start sending your photos.

We need your photos, so please get snapping today!
