From the Mount Pavilion, down through the immaculate floral gardens to the sunlit seafront, the Fylde Coast resort is looking its best in this lovely colour offering from filmmaker Norman Ellis. In this tranquil setting, children paddle or watch a marionette show, while all ages enjoy boating, playing crazy golf, grappling with a giant game of draughts, or waving as the Isle of Man ferry departs.
