The new Community Safety Hub at Hemlington is to provide a permanent showcase of the fascinating history and breathtaking beauty of the Cleveland area.
Local people are being asked to submit their favourite images of the area and the best will go on display throughout the flagship hub for Cleveland Police and partner agencies which is due to open in the Summer of 2018.
“The Community Safety Hub is something we can be very proud of, it is very much a public building and we want to use it to celebrate the very best of our area” said Police and Crime Commissioner Barry Coppinger, whose office is overseeing the move to the new premises.
Meeting rooms throughout the hub will be named after aspects of the four districts of Cleveland and suitable images are being sought to make into full size wall canvasses.
The meeting room names, three from each local authority, are:
- Middlesbrough: Transporter, Riverside, Tees
- Stockton: Locomotive, Endeavour, Infinity
- Redcar and Cleveland: Saltscar, Huntcliffe, Ironstone
- Hartlepool: Marina, Saltholme, Headland
In addition general shots are needed for the public café, reception and other rooms in the hub. These should be based on the theme: Cleveland, a great place to live, work and visit.
Images can have been taken at any time or in the future up until the closing date for entries of March 31 2018. They can be submitted by professional photographers, keen amateurs or the general public.
The competition is open to adults and children alike. It could be an image carefully captured or a sudden moment snapped on a mobile phone.
Any selected to go on show will included the photographer’s name alongside the images.
“Cleveland has such a fascinating mix of backdrop, from coast to country, urban to rural and we want to showcase it all with images throughout the new Community Safety Hub” said Mr Coppinger.
“That might be images of landmarks, of landscapes or of local people, a rich mix that highlights the diversity of Cleveland” he added.
Because the images may be blown up to wall canvas size, entrants using mobile phones are advised to adjust to the highest quality setting. Resolution size on all submitted images should be 3000 x 2000 pixels or greater.
Images should be uploaded onto Twitter via the hashtag #CSHphotocomp or copies posted to Liz Byrne at Cleveland Police HQ, Ladgate Lane, Middlesbrough TS5 7YZ.
The new community safety hub at Hemlington has been funded through the sale of Ladgate Lane HQ site and will open in the Summer of 2018.
Contractor Esh Build is committed to supporting the local economy, with 88% of the spend with contractors based within 35 miles of the project and local apprenticeships boosted.
