What does Staffordshire mean to you?

Pointon House Photography Competition

When asked this question, a lot of people probably wouldn’t know how to answer. Some might say that it’s their home, others might say it’s where they grew up, but for a few Staffordshire might have more of an emotional or symbolic meaning. For these people Staffordshire is a symbol of recovery or a symbol of their own personal journey towards a more stable and Concrete future.

This Spring Concrete’s Pointon House team are launching a photography competition to celebrate customers and to showcase how Staffordshire has played a part in their personal journey.

All Honeycomb Group customers, staff and friends can now enter Pointon House’ photography competition which runs until 30 April 2020. Whether you’re a beginner or a pro it doesn’t matter we want to hear from you as Pointon House Wellbeing Officer David Crowther explains: “Photography is great. It can really help to change your perspective on things.”“It allows you to take time out and focus on the beautiful things around us, rather than focusing on the negative things that go on in our lives. For some people, it really helps them to have a glimmer of hope and help to change their outlook on their future.”

“A lot of our Pointon House customers love photography for these very reasons. So I wanted to hold a competition so all customers across the business could reap the benefits but also to celebrate our customers, their stories and all they’ve overcome.”

 

Everyone who enters the competition has a chance of winning one of three amazing prizes!

All entries will be shortlisted by our very own panel of judges, made up of Dave Crowther Pointon House Wellbeing Officer, Marshall Fear Head of Enterprise and Growth at Honeycomb Group, Wayne Eardley Chairman of 6 Towns Photographic Club, a Semi-professional Photographer from Walk Ministries and a Pointon House customer.

If your photo is shortlisted, you’ll then be invited to our celebration event at Honeycomb Group’s Head Office in Stoke at 12pm on 14 May 2020, where the winners will be decided by all those attending on the day. All competition entries will also go on display as part of a collage at the event.
