CON­GRAT­U­LA­TIONS to Angela Gib­son, the win­ner of the Tip­ton photo com­pe­ti­tion with her win­ter land­scape at Sheep­wash Lo­cal Na­ture Re­serve.

Lots of peo­ple sub­mit­ted en­tries over the sum­mer and a short­list of seven pho­tos went on dis­play in Oc­to­ber for the pub­lic to vote for their favourite at the three Tip­ton li­braries and on the Dis­cover Sandwell web­site.

Angela said: “I have lived near Sheep­wash since I was a child and en­joy watch­ing the sea­sons change over there through the year, some­thing I am now shar­ing with my young daugh­ter.”

The Mayor of Sandwell Coun­cil­lor Joy Edis and Tip­ton town chair Coun­cil­lor Ann Jarvis pre­sented Angela with a win­ner’s cer­tifi­cate and £25 ASDA voucher at the Tip­ton Christ­mas launch event at Tip­ton Li­brary at the end of last month.

Coun­cil­lor Jarvis said: “I would like to thank all the pho­tog­ra­phers who en­tered the com­pe­ti­tion and ev­ery­one who voted for their favourite on­line or at Tip­ton li­braries. This has been a won­der­ful way to cel­e­brate and show­case Tip­ton’s parks and green spa­ces and I would like to con­grat­u­late Angela on her win­ning en­try.”

The Tip­ton Christ­mas launch event in­cluded a feast of en­ter­tain­ment in the li­brary, in­clud­ing from Tip­ton Com­mu­nity Choir, Joe John Thomas, the ukulele man, and the Danc­ing Grannies. The event cul­mi­nated with car­ols and the switch­ing on of the Christ­mas lights out­side in Owen Street.
