‘The Place I Live’ Competition Winners

In Spring, Connex launched our over 65’s ‘The Place I Live’ photo competition. We were looking for interesting, inspiring and beautiful photos in 4 categories-Interesting Architecture, Landscapes, Wildlife and Animals and Quirky or Amusing Local features. We were inundated with some stunning photographs and our judges had a tough time picking the winners. In the end they choose 3 winners in each category with a Judges top favourite!

We hope you enjoy seeing these lovely photos and that it might inspire you to get out with your camera or phones to capture the beauty that is all around us. Thank you to everyone for sharing their lovely pictures with us and Congratulations to all the winners!
