Weekends are always a great chance to reflect on the week just gone and this week saw the second Preston InstaMeet.


Around 20 photographers, from pro to amateur, went exploring around Preston Town Hall.

We got the chance to see inside the Mayor’s Parlour and a tour of the main council chamber.

An InstaMeet then means all of that detail is captured on #igerspreston and below are some of our favourite snaps from the evening.

Mr Mayor, councillor Trevor Hart, was very welcoming and gave a very interesting talk and insight into all his Mayoral bling. Paul Melling captured him at his desk no doubt explaining something to us:

And speaking of Mayoral blind, Don Karlo gave a feel for the intricacies of the Mayor’s mace with this shot:
