The Lord Lieutenant, David Briggs, climbs a ladder to light the flame concealed within the floral arrangement. He is going to light the candle and apply it to the fuel within the container.  

 

 

 

 

 

The special guests pose for photographs. Left to right are the Nantwich Town Mayor (Cllr Graham Fenton), the MP for Crewe and Nantwich (Edward Timpson), the Lord Lieutenant, and the Deputy Mayor of Cheshire East (Cllr Dorothy Flude).

Pupils of Pear Tree School, Nantwich, they helped the Lord Lieutenant (pictured with them) to light the floral beacon 

 

 

 

 

 

Nantwich fire service advised that the flame would be best extinguished when there was no one responsible in the vicinity of it. So Nantwich in Bloom Chairman, Doug Butterill, used his patented flame snuffer - fashioned from a wood saw.  He is assisted by Nantwich in Bloom's Secretary, Sue Hughes.

He did this on behalf of Nantwich in Bloom  Above: Pupils, teachers, parents and adults in town at the time, enjoy the party which followed the beacon-lighting ceremony
