Councillor Andy Kelly reading the Lancashire Day Proclaimation

Councillor Andy Kelly said he was particularly proud to read the proclamation for Lancashire day in the village!

The proclamation reads:


Know ye that this day, November 27th in the year of our Lord Two Thousand and Twenty Three the 2nd year of the reign of His Majesty King Charles III, Duke of Lancaster, is LANCASHIRE DAY.

Know ye also, and rejoice, that by virtue of His Majesty's County Palatine of Lancaster, the citizens of the Hundreds of Lonsdale, North and South of the Sands, Amounderness, Leyland, Blackburn, Salford and West Derby are forever entitled to style themselves Lancastrians.

Throughout the County Palatine, from the Furness Fells to the River Mersey, from the Irish Sea to the Pennines, this day shall ever mark the peoples' pleasure in that excellent distinction - true Lancastrians, proud of the Red Rose and loyal to our Sovereign Duke.

Blessings to the people of Milnrow and Newhey in the Borough of Rochdale
