• St Helens day

    St Helens Day took place this year to mark our borough’s 150th anniversary.

    In 1868 Queen Victoria granted the charter that incorporated the municipal borough of St Helens, integrating Eccleston, Parr, Sutton and Windle. 150 years on, St Helens Day offered time to reflect upon some of those that make our borough special. Pioneers in Glass production and pharmaceuticals are just two examples alongside musicians, sportsmen and women and many more.

    The civic parade, led by the Mayor, celebrated the people of the borough. The St Helens 150 programme has seen local arts and cultural partners working alongside the council to create an exciting year of events right across the borough.

    As well as reflecting upon the town’s proud history we also look forward to a bright future for the borough.
