Redcar Faces has been launched and the campaign to find the 20 ‘Faces of Redcar’ has begun.
Redcar and Cleveland Borough Council is working with United Creatives, Tees Valley Unlimited, Network Rail and Northern Rail to find out who local people think are the faces of Redcar.
It could be a local butcher, school teacher, shop worker, street cleaner or just a familiar face in the town – whoever it is we would love to know.
Each person nominated will be entered into the final and a specially selected judging panel will choose the final 20. Those who are picked will take part in a photo-shoot session and will feature as part of a permanent art exhibition at Redcar Central Railway Station.
Cabinet Member for Culture, Leisure and Tourism, Councillor Olwyn Peters, said: “As part of the continued regeneration of Redcar we are planning on making some changes to the railway station and its facilities.
“This exhibition will be a fantastic way for us to highlight what’s in the town and some of the faces that visitors old and new can expect to see. I think it’s a really great idea and hope that everyone has fun whilst choosing their Face of Redcar.”
To nominate an individual simply visit www.redcar-cleveland.gov.uk/redcarfaces or log on to the Council’s Facebook page www.facebook.com/redcarcleveland. Closing date for nominations is Monday 15th July.
