Victor Perrett of Bramcote is one of three budding artists who received an early Christmas present this week after the winners of Broxtowe Borough Council’s ‘My Home’ art competition were named at the Council Offices in Foster Avenue, Beeston.
Broxtowe Borough Council invited younger and older people to enter their best artwork to reflect what makes the borough their home for the chance to win one of three £25.00
The Mayor of the Borough of Broxtowe, Councillor Margaret Handley, was asked to judge the entries and choose two winners from the older person’s category, and one from the younger person’s category:
Older Person’s Category – Victor Perrett, from Bramcote, for his photograph of Attenborough Village. The Mayor commented: “The reflection of the church in the water is excellent. A very artistic photograph.”
Older Person’s Category – Roger Chrich, from Chilwell, for his computer generated painting of his garden in summer. The Mayor commented: “Fantastic work, it takes skill to create a computer generated painting. This picture makes me think of summer days.”
Younger Persons Category – Ewan Parton, six, from Beeston, for his painting of his home. The Mayor commented: “Ewan has an eye for detail – very well done!”
The winners were invited to the Council Offices in Beeston earlier this week to receive their prize, as well as to see their award-winning paintings on display in the newly-refurbished Housing Information Room at the Council Offices.
The Housing Information Room has recently had a makeover with new chairs, table and children’s play area, providing customers with a more comfortable environment to make enquiries about their housing needs.
