Making a Difference
to people's lives

Deadline extended for local calendar competition

Taking care of the earth has never been more important. We want to celebrate the incredible work you’re doing to help make a change in our 2023 calendar, and inspire others to do the same. And by popular request, we are extending the competition closing date to allow entries after the summer holidays.

Show how you’re making an impact – get snapping, painting or creating! Think hedgehog hotels for the autumn months, lawns with luscious wildflowers and busy bumble bees for spring and summer, and reclaimed ‘rubbish’ sculptures to add a splash of colour to the winter months.

“It’s the fourth year of running our popular calendar competition”, says Sam Hine, Social Value and Inclusion Manager for The Wrekin Housing Group. “This year we wanted to highlight the climate crisis and encourage our tenants to live a more eco-conscious life. This could be as simple as reducing waste, reusing and recycling around the home, growing some wild flowers or a veg patch.

“I’m looking forward to seeing how the artists are making small sustainable changes to inspire others.”

Entries can be in any and every medium, and you now have until 11 September 2022 to submit a photo of your work. For more guidelines on how to enter, visit
