It is the last remaining society of its type in Britain.... bigger WOW!!
Today it appears that the pull they have with the 'whoever' makes it rain ran out as it rained for the first time in 30 years!!
Ladies from 5 - 91 marched through the town carrying their staffs of local flowers, parading the latest fashions in umbrellas and tasty pink ponchos. They are led by a pipe band, march to the church and then on to the Civic Hall for a members meal and this year because we are all slightly over the top patriotic, with jubilee, Euro football and London 2012 the turn out of females were followed by Neston's very own 12 foot tall queen!!
All in all though, even with the rain, everybody, especially all the women seemed to enjoy themselves!
