Coun Lesley McKay represents Poulton’s Tithebarn ward on Wyre Council and serves on the Gala committee.

She said: Obviously we were absolutely devastated when we saw the weather forecast because we thought it was going to be nicer.

“We were so impressed with how many people turned out.

“We had a full parade and the streets were full of people watching stood in the rain.

“It was really nice.”

Coun McKay also thanked Reverend Martin Keighley for allowing entertainment to take place in the church due to the poor weather.
