Poulton-le-Fylde Photographic Society was formed 50 years ago after the town’s Festival Committee ran a photographic competition. They have just celebrated their Golden Anniversary with a dinner at Singleton Lodge. Guest speaker at the occasion was Roger Goodwill, a Life Member of the Society and previous head of the Photographic Department of Blackpool and the Fylde College. He is shown (left) in the photo with his wife Ann and Chairman Phil Hodson DPAGB EFIAP BPE1*.
Every year since their foundation the Society has held an exhibition of their best photographs from the previous twelve months. The 50th Anniversary Exhibition will be held in the Masonic Hall, Market Place, Poulton from 3rd to 11th June and will be open every day (except Sunday) from 10 am to 5 pm. Admission is free to everyone.
In conjunction with this exhibition, the Society is organising a photographic competition for local residents. Money prizes will be won and entry details can be found on the club’s website : www.poultonps.co.uk
