The Theme of the competition 

Get out your digital camera or mobile phone and take a picture that captures " My Winchmore Hill ". 

We realise the modern Winchmore Hill means different things to different people - young or old, the recently moved-in to the people that have been here all their lives, we all take a different view.

If you've never entered a photographic competition before this is an ideal opportunity to start. 
Why not get out there and capture your Winchmore Hill ?
