TWNM - Lawley Village - Photo Comp

Six amateur photographers have had their eye-catching work recognised in a photo competition, after they captured pictures to illustrate why they love life in Lawley Village, Telford.

Housebuilding consortium the Lawley Village Developer Group (LVDG) – which comprises Barratt Homes, Charles Church, David Wilson Homes, Persimmon Homes and Taylor Wimpey – launched the ‘Loving Life in Lawley’ contest earlier this year, encouraging enthusiastic snappers of all ages to take photos which reflect the neighbourly atmosphere, appealing architecture and wonderful scenery in and around this thriving new community.

This is the second time the LVDG has run the ‘Loving Life in Lawley’ competition, after 2013’s initiative turned out to be a tremendous success. This year, a fantastic selection of entries was received, including superb shots of the countryside and of residents enjoying the neighbourhood.

The winner of the adult category is Chris Lewis, who has been awarded £500 for his unique and beautiful photograph of the scenic landscape at the development, while runner-up Frank Lowe bagged £100 for his stunning artistic snap of a local pond.

Katie Kinnon, aged 16, wins the top prize of a £100 gift voucher in the 12 to 18-year-olds category for her creative shot of two teenagers enjoying life at Lawley Village and runner-up Joshua Guy (12) earns himself a £50 gift voucher thanks to his photograph of the new homes at the development, with village greenery in the background.

The winner of the Under 12s category is Joel Crabbe, who captured a close-up of the iconic The Grazing Cow statue in the village, and the runner-up is Ryley Gerrard for his picturesque snap of the sun rising over the development. Joel wins a £100 gift voucher, while Ryley takes home a £50 voucher for his efforts.

Guy Scott, 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.

“Our photographers clearly feel very strongly about their new community and their pictures do a fantastic job of capturing the community spirit, architecture and open space around the development.”

The winning entries will be displayed on the Lawley Village website and in the Lawley Village Information and Management Centre.

We have a superb selection of beautiful new homes currently on sale at Lawley Village at our Forest Glen and Woodland View developments. Further information about Lawley Village is available by visiting
