Chance For Teenagers To Win Shopping Vouchers

Enter the Merton Memories photo competition

Teenagers have the chance to win shopping vouchers by entering a photo competition run by the Merton Memories project.

Three Elys vouchers worth £50, £30 and £20 are up for grabs for the best photos showing modern Merton, sent via Twitter using #modernmerton.

The competition is for teenagers only, and the best photos will also be added to the Merton Memories collection and shown at a special Discovery Day on April 26. Winners will be announced at the Discovery Day event.

Supported by the Heritage Lottery Fund, the Merton Memories project tells the story of one hundred years of Merton's history using the medium of photography.

Twenty six volunteers aged from 15 to 70 spent a year helping to scan and catalogue 15,000 photographs belonging to Merton Library and Heritage Service for the project.

There has also been support from heritage groups including Merton Historical Society, the Museum of Wimbledon, Wandle Industrial Museum, Mitcham Cricket Green Community & Heritage and Mitcham Camera Club.

The Discovery Day takes place at Morden Library in the Civic Centre, from 10.30am-3.30pm when a range of different activities take place. For more details, click here.
