Annual Bonfire Party – 5 November 2018

The Bonfire Party on Monday November 5 was a great success. 700 to 800 people turned up on a dry night to enjoy an enormous bonfire, spectacular freworks and great food.

We are, as ever, indebted to the Foot family for the use of the land and providing material for the fire.

Particular thanks go to Chris Emblen and Stuart Mead, who took over the organisation this year and made sure that the annual event continued.
