Photography competition to help save water in Hertfordshire
Hertfordshire is one of the driest counties - yet wastes far more water than the rest of the country.
Now Hertsmere Borough Council has launched a photographic competition to encourage people to conserve it.
The winning entry, which can be taken on a camera or smart phone, will be the photograph that most creatively and effectively captures the water-saving message.
Hertfordshire residents each use 162l of water a day, 12l more than the national average.
Councillor Jean Heywood, who speaks on environmental issues for Hertsmere said: “We should only be using around 130l a day so we have some work to do.
“Saving water not only helps the environment but also saves you money on metered water bills and reducing hot water will also lower your energy bills.
“We hope residents get on board with the competition, which is a fun way to help spread the word.”
The competition is being run in association with Affinity Water and ‘Green our Herts’ – a county-wide partnership of local authorities that promotes a greener county.
To enter the photo competition, use a smart phone or camera and send your photo with a title and short description to firstname.lastname@example.org by 5pm on November 22.
The winning photographer will receive £75 of shopping vouchers. For full instructions and terms and conditions visit www.greenourherts.org.uk
