Superb snaps showcase the best of Lawley life
Six talented photographers have been praised for their pictures capturing why they love life in Lawley Village.
Visitors and local residents were invited to submit their favourite photos reflecting life in and around the new community in Telford for a competition run by the Lawley Village Developer Group (LVDG), which comprises Barratt Homes, Charles Church, David Wilson Homes, Persimmon Homes and Taylor Wimpey.
Entries were submitted by adults and children, with images of the countryside and green open spaces near Lawley Village and of families enjoying their new neighbourhood among the contenders.
The winner of the adults category was Chris Lewis, who was awarded £500 for his photograph of the Lawley Village shopping area lit up at night, while the runner-up was Andrew Crabbe, whose picture of his son Joel running through the new shopping precinct won him £100.
15-year-old Katie Kinnon won the top prize of a £100 gift voucher in the 12 to 18-year-olds category for her stunning shot of a daisy. The runner-up was Georgia Dixon (18) for her photograph of a beautiful purple flower, earning her a £50 gift voucher.
In the 11-and-under category, seven-year-old Lewis Wheeler's picture of the Lawley Village chip shop won him a £100 gift voucher, while runner-up Dylan Guy (five) earned a £50 gift voucher for his snap of flowers in front of a house at Lawley Village.
Guy Scott, Project Director for LVDG, says: "We were delighted with the quality of the entries we received, which was a great opportunity for residents to show us what they love the most about living at Lawley Village."
The winners were selected by a judging panel made up of Telford and Wrekin Mayor Cllr Leon Murray, Mayoress Barbara Murray, Telford Journal editor Phil Gillam, Telford and Wrekin Council Creative and Cultural Development Officer Justine Ranson, Lawley and Overdale Parish Council Vice-chairman Cllr Darren Blackburn and Tony Thomas, Treasurer and Programme Secretary for Wrekin Arts Photographic Club.
