The blustery winds also brought down a tree in Runshaw Hall Lane in Euxton.

Elsewhere a tree fell down in Spendmore Lane, Coppull near the railway bridge and in Clayton-le-Woods a fence has fallen near the junction of Pendle Road and Mendip Road.

“The giant pan and stand are now here. Big Thank you to Mick McMillan for making the stand and to Alan Holmes from Holmes Fabrication for making the giant aluminium tray for the hotpot.

“Pictures will be taken once the risk of being blown flat on my face of the village green is over.”
