Rear View by Peter Robinson has had us chuckling all season and this week, after appearing in many of our inter-club competitions it gained perhaps its highest accolade  in being our highest scoring image in the North Cheshire Challenges PDI Knock-Out. It is such a pleasure to see a photograph appreciated for its intrinsic qualities and not what it can be made into! Worthy of the late great Tony Ray-Jones this super slice-of-life will be remembered for a long time.
