It was with regret that we decided to cancel the bonfire and fireworks this year. The high winds and rain on the day made it too dangerous to continue. In addition the field was extremely boggy.
Although it was a great shame, the Society has not lost significant sums of money as a result (though we have, of course, lost the profit we hoped to make). We use professional dispay organisers, so we had not bought fireworks. Some of the food bought in advance was given to local good causes. Other food can be stored for later use.
