Lytham’s streets and historic Hall grounds were awash with colour and fun as the town celebrated its annual Club Day.
The traditional morning procession through the town centre was followed by the crowning of new rose queen Daisie Smith at the Hall, which then hosted an afternoon and evening of entertainment and games for all the family.
Daisie, 13, attends St Bede’s RC High School and represents St Cuthbert’s CE Church. She succeeded 15-year-old Emma Clark as rose queen and said: “I am honoured to have been chosen to be this year’s Lytham Rose Queen.”
Among those providing the afternoon entertainment – for a fifth year at the Hall – were the Poco Loco Salsa Band, Guardian Band, the Fylde Sports Acrobats display team, the Lytham St Annes Lifeboat Shanty Crew, the Toll Bar Band and the Casablanca Steel Band.
A Songs of Praise-style concert followed in a marquee in the hall grounds yesterday, while the traditional Club Day funfair, successfully switched to a new location in the shadow of the town’s Windmill because of sea defences works at its traditional site, continues tonight until 9.30pm.
A Club Day committee spokesman said: “Thank you all for a lovely Club Day.”
