Pickmere is just about perfect. That was the feeling among judges of the 56th Cheshire Community Pride competition who voted it the winning village.

Pickmere is just about perfect. That was the feeling among judges of the 56th Cheshire Community Pride competition who voted it the winning village.


Proud residents stepped forward to collect yet another accolade for their picture perfect village.


Their success was announced at Middlewich Civic Hall in front of dignitaries, council leaders, parish councillors and competition judges from all around the county. Locals received a painting of Pickmere - located near Knutsford - by the renowned Cheshire Life watercolour artist Gordon Wilkinson, which is sponsored by the magazine.

Among those singled out for personal endeavour was Jake Thompson, from Culcheth, who was praised as a most worthy recipient of the Young Persons Good Citizen Award.
The competition demonstrates how much work is undertaken by Cheshire residents to keep so many areas of the county looking their best.
