Chairman Nick Hamilton said: “The weather held and this year we seemed to have more support than at previous galas.

“It was a great day and this year we saw the return of the Singleton Cloggers to the procession. They used to take part years ago, and their come back went down very well with everyone.

“We also had the Poco Loco band playing and 13 Queens looking lovely. We had two of our own, eight visiting queens on floats and three walking.”

The Mayoress of Blackpool, Coun Maxine Callow crowned Caitlin Davies as the Rose Queen and Ella Mitchell as Prince Charming. The outgoing Queen was Olivia Michley.

Mr Hamilton added: “There’s a lot of organisation that goes into the gala, and I’d like to thank everyone on the committee for their help, and also my wife Bev.”

A collection of £360 was made, which will go towards the cost of the event.
