Rosemere marked the final day of the Platinum Jubilee with a Morecambe Bay walk alongside 280 adults, children and dogs.


The group paraded en masse across Morecambe Bay from Arnside to Grange to raise funds for Rosemere by participating in its annual Cross Bay Walk, sponsored by Darwen-based commercial printing company Empine Group Ltd.

They were led safely across the bay’s notorious mudflats by the Queen’s Guide to the Sands, former local fisherman Michael Wilson.

Yvonne Stott, a community fundraiser for Rosemere Cancer Foundation, said: said: “It was wonderful to see so many people turn out on a Bank Holiday weekend to support us.

“Many of them wore red, white and blue and carried Union Jacks for the Jubilee. Some celebrated reaching Grange with a picnic to enjoy a Big Jubilee Lunch party.

“We are very grateful to everyone who made this year’s Cross Bay Walk an especially memorable one.”
