Lymm Photographic Society - Community
Sharing the joys of photography in our village
Getting involved


In June 2016, 15 club members spent a memorable and exclusive evening at Gauntlet Birds of Prey in Knutsford. Read the Press Release here.

We again supported the Lane End Cottage Gardens annual photography weekend in May 2016 (see June 2016 Lymm Life page 10) and our members were out and about photographing the the 2016 May Queen (in the pouring rain!) and Lymm Festival in 2016. One of our members' photographs was used in the 2016 Lymm Festival brochure to illustrate the Food Festival.


See our Aerial Lymm Project, in conjunction with Sky 1 TV - click here or on the aerial shot of the village on the left.



As you can see from the photo of our most recent Dickensian stall, the Lymm Photographic is privileged to support our village. Our involvement in the local community has included a rolling display of members' photographs in Lymm library, a stall at two Lymm Dickensian days, a photo display at a local care home and the supply of photographs for the Parish Council's guide to Lymm and current day photos for the Lymm Historical Transport Day book "The Wheels and The Water". In 2015 we took part in Lymm/Meung sur Loire twin town Double Exposure project (organised by Estelle Cadwallader and Hazel Hughes) and supported the Lymm Festive photo weekend at Lane End Nursery in April, plus, as always, the full Lymm Festival and Transport Day amongst other things. We are also amongst the local societies informally connected to the  Lymm Heritage Centre.

You will often see our members wandering around the village with their cameras or shooting local events - if you do, stop us and say "hello" and if the person with camera turns out not to be a member of the Lymm Photographic Society, do suggest that they search "Lymm Photographic" on the internet.
With the support of Lymm Life and in partnership with the Dickensian Committee we ran our first public competition in December 2016. See the winner here.
In 2017 we were invited to assist the Scouts with their photography badges and our members will no doubt be seen around the village at various events.
If you know of a local event that might provide a photo-opportunity, please let us know by using our contact form.

The Society started 2018 with a visit to the Lymm Heritage Centre and we jointly explored ways in which the LPS and the LHC could collaborate....watch this space!
The Lymm Photo Soc was doing its bit to support the Lymm Festival in its 2018 twentieth year anniversary by mounting an exhibition as a Festival event. Click here Lymm Festival on the Festival logo (left) to find out more.....
....and you can see a snap shot of the exhibition here.

At the kind invitation of Lymm Rugby Club, a group of Society members braved the weather on the 8th September 2018 to take photos of the rugby club in action. Having rained all day until kick off we were delighted that the rain considerately stopped for our shoot.
This was a win-win for our local community: the rugby club gains photos they can use for publicly and through that the photo soc gains publicity itself with credits. What a great inter-Lymm partnership!

....and here's the coverage from the local press....

October 2018 - Once again this year the Lymm Photographic Society's President will be judging the High Legh Community Association's Photography Competition, from the exhibition of entries on Sunday 14th October in the High Legh Village Hall (1pm-4pm). Many High Legh organisations are participating in the exhibition which will be staged alongside the Photographic Competition. Visitors are welcome to attend free of charge to have a look at the fascinating things that are going on across High Legh village.
November 2018 sees the Lymm Cruising Club photographic competition. The Lymm Photographc Society is pleased to be supporting this community photographic event by supplying a judge. 
Then & Now Project 2019 (working title). The Lymm Photo Soc has now started shooting the images for this joint endeavour with the Lymm Heritage Centre. Throughout 2019 the Society will be restaging old photographs of Lymm as they look now, wherever possible including the current occupants, to form archive shots which will themselves become vintage in yours to come. We hope that this project will result in a booklet or similar in a year or so. The first images take in January 2019 were with the Lymm Fire Station engine and crew and staff from Brookfield Surgery (who now occupy the old Fire Station).

Our “Then & Now” project began in 2019, as a joint endeavour with the Lymm Heritage Centre, with a mission to restage old photographs of Lymm (supplied by the Heritage Centre) as they look now, wherever possible including the current occupants, to form archive shots which will themselves become vintage in years to come. The outcome has been a book titled “Double Take” (published November 2020) to raise funds for the Heritage Centre. We are immensely proud of this professionally printed book which runs to almost 100 pages, with additional text and production by the Heritage Centre. The press release, as featured in the December 2020 edition of Lymm Life, explains more.

How to buy the book. This can most easily be done online at the Heritage Centre’s secure online shop here:
https://www.lymmheritageshop.co.uk/product-page/double-take-past-meets-present-in-lymmd

When lockdown rules permit non-essential premises to open, it will also be available at Ruby & Harry’s shop on Bridgewater Street and at the Heritage Centre. Also available at Lymm Post Office. Please support the Lymm Photographic Society and the Lymm Heritage Centre by buying the book.

Members can find an archive of the original project supporting information here.

The Society was really pleased to again support the Lymm Festival with an online exhibition. You can find out more about the exhibition here. Separately, the Society also provided photos of animals to be used as models for the Festival collage.

December 2021 :  We're back in the library! After an coronavirus delay of 18 months, our rolling exhibition has returned to Lymm Library.
Judging by their social media post, the library is excited too.
Do dop in and take a look.
See their post here : https://www.facebook.com/1014290318679737/posts/4348375061937896

We were again very pleased to have been invited to stage an exhibition for the Lymm Festival. As we entered the (hopefully) post-Covid era, at last we were able to set up a real prints exhibition, rather than a virtual exhibition. As you can, the exhibition was well received.
"Enjoyed the exhibition - high quality and good variety"
"A very professional exhibition which impressed me. Enjoyed it enormously. Too many favourites to pick out one."
"Excellent selection covering all aspects of photography"
"Fabulous photographs and a wonderful variety of styles and subjects. Very impressive - really enjoyed looking at them."


The Autumn of 2022 proved very busy from the point of view of our community involvement. Apart from helping a villager record photographically some very precious medals, when the Society was approached by the Lymm Heritage Centre for a fund-raising jigsaw photograph, one of our members was very happy to oblige. We are also supporting Lymm Library in its 100th birthday celebrations with a display of Lymm-based images around the library. We were also so pleased to be able to host a public open evening to share the joy of photography and to help to answer any questions that villagers had about how to improve their use of phones or cameras to take better photographs.

Phew, it's been busy and we remain committed to supporting and engaging with the community of which we are very much a part.
