A chance to make your mark on town firm’s calendar

A LONG-ESTABLISHED family firm is looking for the community to help it create its annual calendar.

Hartlepool company F.Peart & Co is appealing to members of the public in the town and across the wider North-East to submit photos that they believe represent their local area through the seasons, to create its 2013 calendar.

The winners will see their photos printed in the company’s calendar and F Peart & Co will make some available for sale to raise funds for a charity in the local area.

In addition, a £50 high street gift voucher will be awarded for the best photo submitted in each age range.

The company, which distributes heating oils and fuels across the North East has launched the photographic competition, available for all ages to enter across two categories children (aged up to 16) and adults (aged 16 and above).

Barry Stoker, regional manager at F.Peart & Co, said: “We produce calendars each year using images of the local area sourced from photo libraries, so this year we thought we’d reach out to our customers and the community by asking for their input in compiling the photographs we use.”

To apply, budding photographers should email their images to calendarcomp@myheatingoil.net before July 8.

The location (place name and county) of the photo should be clearly stated in the subject line of the email, along with the entrant name, address, phone number and age category in the main body of the email.

Successful applicants will be notified by August 12.

if they have been successful.

The company, which was established 80 years ago, said terms and conditions apply and that they reserve the right to decline submissions.
