Congratulations to Richard Barrett who won both the print and digital categories of the Chester and West Cheshire Conservation Trust Anniversary Photographic Exhibition which were judged independently by different people.
Richard’s winning images were of The Groves Chester and the stocks at Ince.
On Thursday 14th September, the Lord Mayor of Chester, Razia Daniels, formally opened the Exhibition to celebrate 50 years since local authorities could designate ‘Conservation Areas’. This has enabled them to exercise control over what was demolished, what should be refurbished, and what new developments were permissable.
The Exhibition is in the Weslyan Centre on St John Street, Chester. Just past the main Post Office, and opposite M&S’s side entrance. It runs until 7th October and is open 10am to 4pm Monday to Saturday. There is no entrance charge. 73 printed images are on display, and 170 images run as a slide show.
