MONDAY night’s fireworks marked the end of a wealth of celebrations in Frodsham.
Hundreds of people trekked to the top of Frodsham Hill to enjoy music and dancing into the early hours during this year’s Frodsham Music Festival.
And, while residents gathered together to watch the fireworks display, Frodsham’s most famous son Gary Barlow did the town proud as he took to the stage in front of millions of people after helping to organise the Jubilee concert at Buckingham Palace.
Despite the pouring rain, dozens of residents had their faces painted red, white and blue and donned crowns in a marquee in the grounds at Castle Parks as the town got ready to picnic and party on Sunday.
Residents gathered to plant 40 Jubilee trees to create a lasting reminder of the celebrations.
Former mayor Andrew Dawson said it was fantastic to see everyone having such a great time despite the gloomy weather.
He said: “Frodsham Hill was completely full of people watching the fireworks and waiting to see the beacon being lit. There must have been hundreds there. It was fantastic to see.”
This Sunday hundreds of residents are expected to gather at the station car park at 2pm to take part in a Jubilee walk.
