In May 2016 Buckhurst Hill Residents' Society worked alongside traders in Queens Road to hold a Photographic Competition & Exhibition to celebrate Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth’s 90th Birthday.
The challenging title given - "Queen" - invited a wide variety of interpretation.
The judging was equally challenging! Ken Williamson (representing BHRS Committee and BH Parish Council), alongside Tracy Welton of Fingertips (representing BHRS Members and Queens Road Traders) spent considerable time examining the photographs and making their decisions. Those chosen very much exemplified the breadth of subject, from portrait to object, from action to scene.
A small selection of the entries were exhibited for two weeks at the top of Queens Road, thanks to supportive traders loaning their windows. We were very lucky to have had this as our public gallery.
1st Prize - "She's coming!" - Janet Caddock
2nd Prize - "Queen of our Castle" - Emma Maher
joint 3rd Prize - "Duke of Normandy" - Jonathan Stevenson and "The Queens Tuk-Tuk" - Tom Peck.
