Troopers Hill art competition is open to all ages
ARTISTS of all ages are being encouraged to produce a work celebrating the 25th anniversary of Troopers Hill being declared a local nature reserve.
The Troopers Hill Young Rangers are organising a friendly art competition, open from March 1 to May 31, where entrants can submit works inspired by the reserve’s wildlife and landscape.
There are three age groups – under-12, 12 to 16 and over-16 – and three categories: Wild Flora and Fauna, Landscape and Geology and People and History.
Full details of the competition, including the rules, can be found online at www.troopers-hill.org.uk/art25.
Nine winners will receive a certificate and the overall winner will be awarded a trophy.
The judging panel will include the Young Rangers and professional artists Angie Tonge, who runs the Summerhill Arts Club at Summerhill Methodist Church, and Tony Rudman, who instructs the Young at H’art group at the Wellspring Centre at Barton Hill.
The entries most admired by the panel will go on display on Troopers Hill Field on June 28, when there will be an anniversary tea on the hill at 4pm.
