On Centenary Day, Cathy Pace, of Culture, Sport & Community Learning Services, inaugurated the London Borough of Redbridge's Photographic Competition to celebrate 100 years of Hainault Forest. Two prizes of 50 were kindly donated by Hainault Business Park.

 

There were two categories for entry:

Happy Memories, which covered any images taken in Hainault Forest at any time, and Memories of Centenary Day, which covered any images taken during the celebrations on 15th July.

 

The response to the competition was very good and the judges had a hard job selecting the winning entries, as the quality of the majority of images submitted were of a very high standard.

 

The two winners were Mrs Lynn Beckles of Romford for her Centenary Day image of children in a sack race, and

Ron Andrews of Chingford for his image of the Buckhurst Hill Community Walking Group on a frosty morning in the forest.

 

All of the many images are currently on display at the Country Park Visitors Centre, until the end of August.

 

On the 11th August at the Country Park, the two winners were presented with their certificates and cheques for 50 by Chris Wyles, Joint Chairperson of the Hainault Business Park, with Iain Varah, Chief Officer Culture, Sport & Community Learning, London Borough of Redbridge in attendance.
