The Heaths and Me – Your memories

August 6, 2020 – August 12, 2020 all-day
The Heaths and Me - Your memories

What’s your earliest memory of visiting the Pebblebed Heaths? Perhaps you have been exploring the heaths for decades or you might have only just discovered them. Did your parents bring you here and now you bring your own children? Maybe you worked on the heaths or trained here as a Royal Marine? Scroll back or dig out that album. Share it and a photo on social media using #TheHeathsAndMe or send to

This summer we want to find out what the heaths means to the people that spend time there. For the next 6 weeks we will be asking you to share different kinds of photos to build up the story of the heaths. A selection of images will be chosen for an exhibition next year to celebrate the heaths.

How to take part

This isn’t a typical photography competition and we are not looking for the ‘perfect shot’, rather the sense of place or the moment or feeing it captures.

  • Snap a photo next time you are out on the heaths, scroll back on your phone or dig out something older from the photo album!
  • Each week look out for our social media posts, pop-up reminders across the heaths or weekly event listing on our website, to prompt you to contribute different types of image.
  • Share your photo on Facebook, Twitter or Instagram using the hashtag #TheHeathsAndMe please set the privacy setting to public otherwise we may not be able to view your photo. Alternatively email it to please only email 1 photo (max 10MB) per week in JPG or PNG format and write ‘The Heaths and Me’ in the subject line.
  • Please include a sentence in your social media post or email to share why you chose this photo.
