The Tring Local History Museum has partnered with Cala Homes for a photography contest dedicated to life in Tring.
Homebuilder and museum are asking locals to share photos of life in the Chiltern Hills in 2022, with the winning entry and two shortlisted entries to be showcased at the Tring Local History Museum in Brook Street throughout the month of June.
As well as being featured in the local history museum for residents to view, homebuilder Cala, who is creating the new Roman Park community in Tring, is donating a £200 voucher from Chesham Cameras for help the winner pursue their passion for photography.
Stala Thomson, Sales and Marketing Director at Cala Homes (Chiltern), said: “Tring has played a significant role in the history books with mentions of the town in key documents such as the Domesday Book. As the Queen becomes the first British monarch to celebrate a Platinum Jubilee, marking 70 years of service, we want to highlight the lives of our residents and other people of Tring during this time.

“We want participants to capture what they think best represents life in Tring, whether it’s hiking in the Chilterns, exploring the canals and reservoirs, or living in High Street. We want to see it all!”
Tim Amsden, Society President at the Tring Museum of Local History, said: “We are proud of our role in Tring’s history as we share with locals and visitors our heritage and the important families and individuals who lived and worked in Tring.
“This photography competition is one of the ways we plan to mark the Jubilee, which is a rare occasion not only in the history of our town, but for the rest of the UK. Thanks to Cala Homes, who provided the frames and the prize, we will be able to share this competition with the public throughout the month of June.
The competition will run from May 4 to May 20.
To participate, photographs must be sent to the email address [email protected] and include the photographer’s name, contact information, and location where the photo was taken.
