Winner of Summer Photo Competition for under 16s

Hannah Allwright - Hadleigh Castle 4am

The Hadleigh & Thundersley Community Archive Under 16 Photo Competition was launched at the Castle Point Show, Canvey Island, on 24th July 2011.  It inspired Hannah Allwright to send us her dramatic portrayal of Hadleigh Castle; contrasting the dark stone with the morning sky. We loved it!

Our worthy winner Hannah Allwright, aged 13, was invited with her family to our formal website launch at Hadleigh Old Fire Station, on 17th September this year, where she was presented with her prize by the Mayor of Castle Point.

Castle Point Mayor Jackie Govier presents Hannah with her prize in the presence of The Right Hon Rebecca Harris MP. Also in the frame, our Town Crier Peter Hammerton (left), and our Chairman Nick Turner (right)

  • Hi, Hannah, it’s an excellent and dramatic picture. Congratulations. The sad dark ruin and the wide expanse of the Thames and Kent in first light. I thought I knew it all, but I have never been out there at a magic 4 o’clock in the morning. Shame we couldn’t see the picture at the time of the prize-giving. RH
