Wymondham Heritage Society is launching a 'Character of Wymondham' competition to find out what residents want from their town.

Wymondham Heritage Society is launching a 'Character of Wymondham' competition to find out what residents want from their town.

Over the last 20 years, the town has seen dramatic changes and now the people who live there are being given the chance to have their say about the things that matter to them.

The Heritage Society is asking questions about what is at the heart of Wymondham's character, whether it be the buildings, or the people. Residents will be able to describe how they see Wymondham, whether they want any improvements made, any changes they lament, whether different generations see the town differently, and whether long-time residents and recent arrivals want the same thing.

People can compile their entries with both words and pictures, and submit them either as text, in a scrapbook, or digitally as a slideshow or movie.

Irene Woodward, Heritage Society chairman, said: "In setting up this competition the Society is in tune with initiatives elsewhere about loving where you live; we hope that the winning entries will not only be displayed at the Heritage Museum but will also provide a greater understanding of what local residents what from their town."

The competition runs until the end of August and the prize-giving will take place on September 19. Application forms are available from Wymondham Library, the Tourist Information Centre and the Heritage Museum at the Bridewell, as well as online at www.wymondhamheritagemuseum.co.uk
