Pickmere and District Photographic and Heritage Society

Pickmere and District Photographic and Heritage Society is a small, friendly organisation which, apart from a short winter break, meets at 7.45 on the third Thursday of the month, at Pickmere Village Hall, Pickmere Lane.

The group is chaired by local historian and photographer Joseph T Robinson, who has published a number of collections of historical photographs of the area. Joe also has a large personal collection of local memorabilia.

The Club holds two photographic competitions each year, one in May and the other at the Horticultural Show in Wincham in August. Photographers of all abilities are encouraged to enter prints both large and small - the Club fosters an interest in photography of all kinds, from garden snapshots to formal portraits, and does not place maximum or minimum restrictions on print size. The interested amateur is as welcome as the experienced photographer.

Guest speakers are invited to give slide shows or talks, and historical exhibitions put on from time to time by Joe Robinson always attract a good number of visitors.
