Collection Twenty One — Favourite Place

MMM partnered with UXBRIDGE Arts and Culture to host a space to celebrate the things that make Howick a special place for people from all walks of life. We set up a range of ways to contribute to three special prompts in person at the UXBRIDGE centre and online. From the 20th September– 2nd November 2022, UXBRIDGE will be hosting our one-of-a-kind Tell-a-phone booth and MMM Post-box, to collect contributor's photos, drawings, and poems along with the story behind them.

Contributors respond to the prompts "Tell us about your favourite place in Howick", "Tell us about a fond memory you have of Howick" and "Share with us an example of Howick's community spirit that made you proud" and are able to submit their contribution either by message or email, drop off a postcard into the MMM Post box or speak to the Tell-a-phone located at UXBRIDGE.

Collection Twenty One — Favourite Place

This collection invited contributors to tell us about their favourite place in Howick (or their neighbourhood). Everyone has a favourite spot they like to frequent around their neighbourhood. Whether that be the local cafe, a community centre or the local park.

Favourite Place is part of the Appreciation Series.

Contributors responded to the prompt "Tell us about your favourite place in Howick."
