Sun shines on carnival
THE recent spell of hot, sunny weather has proved a blessing for local fairs and festivals and this year’s Westhead Carnival was no exception.
Events in the annual celebrations kicked off with a car boot sale on Thursday, July 5, followed by a fancy dress ball on the Friday with the theme of ‘something beginning with C.’
Then it was on to the main event and the carnival procession starting at 12.30pm on the Saturday, the official opening by the Mayor and Mayoress of West Lancs, Councillor Noel Delaney and Mrs Ann Stubert, and the crowning of this year’s Carnival Queen.
And to round things off St James Church held a Carnival Praise service on the field on the Sunday morning.
