Ladies day is the highlight of the year for the Neston Female Society, which was founded in 1814 and is the only surviving female society of this type in the country. Each June they march under their banner bearing the motto “Bear Ye One Another’s Burdens” (taken from St. Paul’s letter to the Galatians) accompanied by children and local dignitares, all very smartly attired and bedecked with flowers. The procession makes its way along the High Street to St Mary’s & St Helen’s Church where there is a short service at 3pm; after this the walk continues to the Civic Hall where tea is served and the members have their AGM.
Full details are on the excellent event website.
In 2017 it will be held on Thursday 1st June.
