Neston Ladies Club 2015 - What a Beautiful Day!

Author: Carrie Spacey Published: 5th June 2015 10:36

Once again Neston was blessed with a day of sunshine for the annual Ladies Club procession.

This was the 201st anniversary of the formation of Neston Female Society and around 160 children and 70 adult members took part, walking from the Malt Shovel to the Parish Church for the traditional service.

They were led by the band of the Scots Guards Association (down in numbers this year due to injuries in the ranks) and accompanied by a number of dignitaries.  Out in front for the first time as Honorary Secretary of the Female Society was Martin Barker, though his predecessor, Robert Halsall, was also on hand to ensure everything went smoothly, along with fellow trustee Andrew McLoughlin.

Michael Darby represented the Lord-Lieutenant of Cheshire. Making one of his first official appearances in his year in office was Lord Mayor of Chester Cllr Hugo Deynem, accompanied by his wife, the Mayoress.  Neston's new Mayor had a prior engagement, but his place was taken by Deputy Mayor Cllr Ceri Lloyd. Members of the local clergy were also in the procession, including Reverend Alan Dawson, Reverend Marcus Torchon, Reverend Hilary Bell and Father Ravi Bosco.  Mr Stephen Dool and Mrs Rachel Hudson represented Neston High School.

After the Church service the procession continued from the rear of the church to the Cross where the traditional blessing took place, along with hymns and the National Anthem, before the band once again led everyone down the High Street and along Chester Road to the Civic Hall for the traditional afternoon tea. The AGM will be held in early July at the Town Hall.

Throughout the day there was live music at The Cross, organised by CAN Group, Hip & Harmony CIC and CH64 Events Group.  CAN Group also gathered together an amazing group of volunteer stewards, who worked their socks off all day on the roads and stage area. These organisations all need more volunteers - if you would be interested in taking part in the organisation of future community events and initiatives, please email us and we will pass your details on. 

MC Roy Wilson introduced the artistes on stage: Oakleigh Briscoe, Paul Reaney, Hip & Harmony Community Choir, The Poppies, Swamp Dog Millionaires and Paula Prytherch's band, Revibe. There was, quite literally, dancing in the street!

Thanks must go to Neston's police unit, who were out in force to help the smooth running of proceedings. Also to Cheshire West and Chester's Streetscene people, who kept the rubbish at bay throughout the day.

All in all, another great day for Neston to be proud of.

Glad to hear the shortage of bandsmen was a temporary glitch. Hope they all recover well and are back to their full compliment by 2016. Get well soon gents. ( and ladies if appropriate ) Really missed the big base drum. Every one looked great in their lovely frocks/ suits.

What a privilege to see the Lord Mayor of Chester in full robes! A great sight, and appreciated by everyone, (except possibly the mayor himself, as I expect they are heavy and hot, and a bit of a responsibility to be carrying all that gold!) Well done to everyone. Perhaps the Mayor of Neston should have some (rather more modest) robes for special occasions. Does anyone else agree?
