Topps Tiles is transforming the spaces at the heart of Birmingham’s community
At the heart of every community is a place where people get together – village halls, community centres, public libraries, and exhibition spaces. According to ACRE, since 1988 village hall use has trebled and each hall hosts an average of nine life events, such as weddings, birthdays, and christening parties*.
Topps Tiles believes that these spaces – where communities gather – to learn, to celebrate, and to get to know each other – help make Britain great and deserve some TLC.
So, how can you transform the space at the heart of your community?
Topps Tiles is giving you to the chance to win up to £2,000 worth of vouchers to spend on tiles or materials that will help transform your community space. Whether you want to liven up a kitchen or spruce up a communal area, new tiles could make a big difference, improving your community space for everyone. You can find out more about the Tile Transformations competition by watching the video below or by visiting http://www.toppstiles.co.uk/transformations.
Sian O’Neill, Head of Online at Topps Tiles commented on the competition: “Community spaces should be celebrated and made welcoming for anyone who wants to visit. We want to keep these important places looking and feeling great, which is why we’re opening up this competition to all communities – up and down the country.”
A panel of judges, including property expert Phil Spencer, will help to decide which community spaces will win the top prizes. The winning entry will receive a first prize of £2,000 worth of vouchers, 2nd prize is £1,000 and 3rd is £500.
So if you help to run, look after, or regularly use a community space that you think could benefit from a bit of love, then submit your nomination at www.toppstiles.co.uk/transformations. Terms and conditions apply.
The competition closes at 5pm on 4th March 2016 – http://www.toppstiles.co.uk/transformations
