My Community – tell us why you love where you live

We’re looking for residents with an interest in writing, photography, or who just love where they live to help celebrate their favourite spots.

This is for a series we’d like to feature which shines a spotlight on the many areas and diverse communities in which Notting Hill Genesis have our homes. And, of course, it would reveal a little about the talented residents behind the stories!

We’ll feature the stories on our website and in our residents’ newsletter, Connections.

The rules of entry are:

Tell us in 150-300 words what you love about the area in which you live. Maybe it’s the view from your window, the friendly neighbours, the leisure amenities or the best croissants ever in the shop down the road - anything that makes you feel lucky to be where you are!

If we accept your entry, we might edit it for length and to fit our house style but we will check with that you’re happy with the changes before publishing and you will be credited as the author.

Please include two photos with your story, one of your area and one of yourself. The photos have to be taken by you, but can be taken on a phone. Bear in mind they need to be good quality so that we can publish them.

To submit your piece, or for more information, please email with My Community as the email title.
