The gala procession set off from King George’s playing fields at noon, working its way around Thornton.

Jubilee Gardens in Cleveleys where the queen was officially crowned.

Blustery conditions didn’t make life easy for the organisers, who were forced to take down part of a marquee put up for the big day after it was damaged by the wind.

The gala day coincided with another big event in Cleveleys, the town’s annual car show, with classic vehicles lining Victoria Road West and the Promenade.
