ARCH photo competition 25/07/2013

Winners and runners up announced!

We've been on the lookout for any inspiring shots that represent your council's housing achievements over the year. The brief was to 'blow your own trumpet' and enter photos of anything from tenant schemes and events to new builds and hard-at-work frontline staff.


28 photos were entered from 11 different councils and the standard was very high. The judges had a tricky time picking the winner and runners up!


1st place


Warwickshire District Council - Tannery Court sheltered housing scheme

Warwick DC

The residents of Tannery Court decided they wanted to enter a float in the local carnival, with the help of the staff they made all the decorations and costumes themselves, they helped to decorate the float and sat on the float (some were in their 90s!) all the way round, this all paid off as their float won first prize in the carnival as well!


2nd place


Hull City Council - tenant involvement framework

Hull CC

A group of tenants with learning disabilities feed in their views for service improvement as part of the tenant involvement framework. The success is that one member of the group now feels confident to act as the chair.


Joint 3rd place


Dacorum Borough Council - 'You are the key' campaign


One of Dacorum's tenants used in the 'You are the key' campaign which encourages tenants to become involved in running the housing service.


Joint 3rd place


Wandsworth Council - Spencer Park community garden


The community garden initiative promotes greater local resident involvement and an opportunity for all residents to come together with common interest. Community gardens have the added benefit of improving the environmental appearance of an area as well as encouraging active lifestyles.
