Longbridge residents and visitors have been sharing their favourite pictures of the area as part of a spring social media competition launched by St. Modwen.
Highlighting the developer’s commitment to supporting the local community, the ‘#LongbridgeInSpring’ campaign invited children and adults alike to submit their best photos of Longbridge to the Longbridge Life website and social media channels.
Three winners were chosen in the competition; Cllr Andy Cartwright, Sue Burton and a mystery twitter user, who goes by the name of ‘Longbridge Superhero’, who together submitted photos that capture every element of Longbridge, including the iconic mini rally and Longbridge in the setting sun. St. Modwen invited the winners to the town centre to collect their hampers.
Andrea Clarke, property manager at St. Modwen said: “Though we’ve been off to a bit of a cold start, it seems that spring has now finally sprung and we wanted to celebrate by sharing local people’s best loved memories of the area.
“The photos we received were really nostalgic, and highlighted some of the great activities and community characters that we have here in Longbridge. I hope the winners enjoy tucking into their hampers!”
St. Modwen, the UK’s leading regeneration specialist, has invested £300 million into regenerating the former MG Rover site since 2003. Four hundred family homes have been delivered along with shops, eateries, offices, the £66 million Bournville College, Longbridge Technology Park and the new Austin Park.
Construction is now well underway on a new £35 million ExtraCare Retirement Village, and work has also started on a 280 bedroom accommodation facility for medical staff working at the Royal Centre for Defence Medicine (RCDM) within the Queen Elizabeth Hospital, in Edgbaston.
