   Joan Webb    March 30, 2020

Joan arrived in Pickmere as an evacuee from Salford in 1940 and remained in the village for 79 years.  She was an active, well-known and popular resident.  She was a founding Parish Councillor in 1947 and was Chair for many years.  She worked at New Cheshire Saltworks in Wincham and also for many years at the fun fair at Pickmere Lake.  She was also a pioneer of the Youth Club, a long-standing member of Pickmere WI and from its opening the chair of Wincham Community Centre.  Many will have fond memories of her local knowledge and reminiscences as well as her popularity as a raconteur of Albert and the Lion and other stories.  She will be sadly missed by many and we extend our sympathies to her family and friends.
