2015 Photo Project

Can you help with our CPRA photo project ?  Do you have any old photographs of your house or area from a few years ago?   We will collect the picture, scan it, and return it to you undamaged.  We will then take a photo to match the location, and put everything side by side on our CPRA web pages.   If you can help please contact Adrian or Dave:
