    It would be when we went on family holiday when i was a child we had no money but had a great time. Sadly I have no photos. I am 55 years old now. Those were the days.@cleggy23

    Just a painting of my dad, buying me an ice-cream on Dunwich Beach when I was young. Still is the strongest memories of him, doing this thing with me. Strange how the mind works

    Ooo, lovely prize!!

    I think my favourite summer memory would be last year – after 3 days of hard trekking we finally came out upon the vista of Machu Picchu in the sunrise. I achieved one of my life ambitions that day and doubt that there are many views in the world quite as stunning as that so it would make the perfect picture!

    For me it would have to be my daughter playing in a paddling pool for the first time. The smile and the joy on her face as she was splashing around was so heartwarming, a memory I hope never fades 🙂

  5. Eleanor

    Taking the family for our first holiday camping, our son loved it very much, a family portrait would be the perfct painting to remember this.

  6. Amy

    My favourite memory was whilst I was travelling in India. An Indian sunset is truly beautiful.

  7. Amy

    Me, my mum, stepdad, brother, sister and grandad went to Butlins for the first time last year and it was hilarious. We don’t often get the family together for holidays so it was really good to get us all together and having lots of fun.

    when I was much younger, in my teens, I had a close group of friends, we used to go to the beach, dress up in fancy dress to go to the pier, bbq’s and never a dull moment. I miss those carefree days..

    my fav memory is my Dad doing handstands in the sea, he died when I wad 15 so my memorys of him are very precious @kikicomp

  10. Nickie Chapman

    Having a barbeque at the lake with my parents and grandparents – that was the last trip home where my grandma was happy and healthy.

  11. Allan

    Memories of my childhood holidays to Great Yarmouth, just sun ice-cream and beach.

  12. Jane Willis

    When I was about 4 years old, walking through the local allotments with my Grandma where all her friends would let me pick as many raspberries and redcurrants as I could eat. The tummy aches afterwards were worth every moment!

  13. Jane

    Best summer memories would probably be camping as a kid, when you feel completely free and you feel that September is million miles into the future and that some never ends.

  14. Katherine

    Going to the movies with my brother and sister during the school holidays

  15. Chloe

    I enjoyed seeing friends and family up north as we didnt often get to visit them after we moved, we used to always get a chocolate bar ffrom grandma who kept them in her purse especially for when family visited. Thinking back I do wonder how long they had been sat there as we didn’t visit too often

  16. Linda

    Our family would take it in turns to choose where we went in the summer holidays, I used to always choose the beach. I loved making sandcastles and finding jellyfish in rock pools.

  17. Janette

    We would have big bonfires in our garden and roast marshmallows on the longest wigs we could find

  18. Amanda

    Last summer we took our children to the petting zoo they thought it was the most amazing experience besides Christmas. After we would make collages of the animals and make animal masks.

  19. Hazel

    The first time my son paddled in the sea when he was a toddler. He always loved water and the look on his face was wonderful.

  20. Gordon Miller

    Lying in a field of long grass in a farm in Yorkshire watching the sun set on a July evening. Use to go to the farm in yorkshire every summer.

  21. Catherine Miller

    Summer memory so many but would have to go for day’s out at Dreamland in Margate!

  22. stukellyuk

    Mine will have to be when i was young, i always went on little outings with my Grandparents, just a few minutes away from home, but it was like a million miles away. We took a flask of tea and some sandwiches and spend the entire day walking through gorgeous countryside and Lovely woodlands.


  23. Frances Heaton

    My grandaughter (carefully!) learning to knit, without dropping a stitch. The expression on her face is hilarious.

    Seeing my daughter sitting with my friend’s son on the beach at Lindisfarne. They just looked so cute together, and the scenery was gorgeous too.

  25. Melanie

    I’d paint Izzy swimming in the sea for the first time a few weeks ago … so cute, clumsy & grown up 🙂 xx
