Neston Celebrates Ladies Club Day in the Sunshine

Published: 2nd June 2017 09:07

The 203rd Neston Ladies Club Day took place on Thursday June 1st, with hundreds of people lining the streets of the town centre to enjoy the annual procession, on what turned out to be a lovely sunny day.

This year's walk was the first since new Honorary Secretary Andy Williams took over. He was joined in the procession by a number of dignitaries, including the Mayor of Neston, Cllr Pat Kynaston,  Junior Mayor Grace Jones, Rev Alan Dawson accompanied by other members of the local clergy, Ellesmere Port & Neston MP candidate Justin Madders, Neston Primary School head teacher Rob Golding and Neston Female Society trustee Andrew McLoughlin.

During the blessing at The Cross, a minute's silence was held to honour the victims of the Manchester bombing and their families, before the Parish Church choir were joined by Hip & Harmony Community Choir for the hymn 'The Lord is My Shepherd.'

Entertainment in between the formalities of the day was arranged by Hip & Harmony CIC, supported by the CH64 Events Group and funded by a grant from Neston Town Council.

Right up until the day before the event there had been a sliver of doubt as to whether it would go ahead, due to the detection the previous week of a gas build-up under the pavement at The Cross. However, venting from an existing chamber, followed by careful monitoring by National Grid engineers, revealed that gas levels were well within safety limits.

Police were highly visible throughout the day and remained so into the evening, in order to minimise anti-social behaviour following the unpleasant fracas that followed last year's event. A minor incident took place at around 6pm, resulting in two people being arrested for public disorder and the Greenland Fishery being ordered by police to close for the remainder of the evening.

A number of local businesses had gone to the trouble of decorating their windows to mark the occasion, a popular gesture amongst those in town for the event.
