This year to celebrate World Environment Day, I launched a photography competition for young people in Feltham and Heston so that we could see the local environment through their eyes. Participants were encouraged to take part in taking a photo of something which represented nature in Hounslow, for example of a tree, community park, wildlife, or even of their garden! We received over 130 fantastic entries.
To celebrate the achievements of the success of the World Environment Day Photography Competition, I hosted a reception and invited our 12 winners to accept their certificates and trophies! The Worshipful The Mayor of the London Borough of Hounslow, Councillor Bishnu Gurung attended and shared how inspiring it was to see the passion the young people of Feltham and Heston had for the environment.
The evening was a huge success. A big thank you to all the children, parents, volunteers and our distinguished guests!
