Fireworks Postponed

Sadly we have decided that we can no longer go ahead with the planned fireworks display on Saturday due to the new national lockdown. Our hearty thanks to all those who have so generously donated to our Village organisations, all is not lost! We hope to reschedule the display for New Years Eve. We will keep you informed. In the meantime you can still donate, every penny raised will be shared amongst our Village organisations – The Village Hall, The Playing Field, The Horticultural Society, The Variety Club, The New Village Hall and The Church.

 

Fireworks and Fundraising!

We are delighted to announce that the Village Firework Display will go ahead on Saturday 7th November at 8.30 pm, weather permitting. Whilst we can’t hold a public event, as we simply wouldn’t be able to apply workable social distancing measures, there will be a firework display for us all to enjoy from the comfort of our own homes and gardens.

The fireworks have been bought and paid for by two major donors and other local individuals. As in previous years, this will be a fundraising event. Our aim is to use this opportunity to raise money for some of our local voluntary organisations whose events and income streams have been adversely affected by the pandemic.

Residents meet at the New Inn to collect torches and then form a procession to the Field. On arrival at the Playing Field all torch bearers are invited to circle the Bonfire prior to the traditional Bonfire Cry being recited, then, the torches are cast onto the fire.  An organised  fireworks display follows.
