The event which was due to be held this Friday 20th March in order to raise money for the Mayor’s chosen charities has had to be cancelled.

The Mayor of Fylde Angela Jacques said:

“We have made the difficult decision to cancel the Mayor’s Ball which was due to be held on Friday, due to the unprecedented public health crisis this country is currently facing.

Of course, I am disappointed to have to cancel the event, but it is absolutely the right thing to do given the current advice provided by the Prime Minister.

Our priority remains people’s health, safety and well-being.

I would like to take this opportunity to thank everyone who has helped to organise this year’s ball, the venue Ribby Hall for being so understanding and accommodating, and everyone for their continued donations to this year’s charities.”
