In Leyland, a church service was held at St Mary’s Church before the procession passed through the town centre to the gates of Worden Park on Sunday.

Led by a drumming band, they paraded from the church on Broadfield Drive along Lancastergate around to Fox Lane before finishing at the park.

A celebration event in Chorley saw the 22 Scout and Guide groups from within Chorley join together to parade from Astley Hall to the field by pet’s corner.
