The Kirkham & Wesham Clubday Committee has requested that all vehicles are removed from the route before 8am on Saturday morning. Kirkham & Wesham Clubday is a traditional family day with a long history of bringing together the Churches in the town with a procession which begins in Wesham and takes in all the main streets. On this special day each year all the Churches process through Kirkham with their banners, brass bands and their chosen Rose Queen together with her attendants. This is a special day for everyone and the people of Kirkham turn out in their hundreds to watch this traditional event Following the morning procession some of the churches hold garden fetes/flower festivals in the afternoon. The annual fair is also situated on the field adjacent to the Memorial Park in Kirkham at the bottom of Church Street.
Club day attracts visitors from far and wide. Many people who used to live in the area always come back. Kirkham & Wesham Clubday dates back over 150 years and it’s a great way to get the community to come together.
The Kirkham & Wesham Clubday Committee would like to thank all those who both participate and assist with the organisation, marshalling etc. which allows us to hold this annual event. We hope everyone has a wonderful day.
Kirkham Town Enhancement Plan
Kirkham Town Council have collated all the feedback we receive from Kirkham Residents and the wider Rural Fylde through consultation events, correspondence received, questionnaires and from general inquiries or complaints over a two year period and have identified where there is room for improvement or enhancement in the Town. We have devised a plan to take us forward. It is called an Enhancement Plan as a Development Plan would imply it is focused on the building of homes, which it isn't and a 3/5 year plan would set a timescale which we cannot commit to. It is a working document which will change, be added to or even taken away from. We hope you will take an interest in our aspirations as we believe it reflects what residents would like to see. With limited resources in finances and staffing Kirkham Town Council cannot do it alone so if you would be interested in setting up a Community Group to drive forward any of the projects or initiatives in the plan then we would welcome your input and fully support you in working to make Kirkham an even better place to live.
