Newstead Community  Bonfire - Fireworks Fund

The Bonfire Night party is the last community get-together until spring, with workshops, food and fun for the whole community to join in

Project aim

The Bonfire Night party is the last community get-together until spring, with workshops, food and fun for the whole community to join in. We need funding for a professional fireworks display.

About the project

This November 7th, it will be the third year we have held a free event for Bonfire Night for everyone in our local community.  Feedback from previous years is that the fireworks are disappointing: because of insurance requirements and our limited budget, we have had a pre-loaded single ignition box lit by a volunteer, which gives 2-3 minutes of low-key fireworks.

The community has grown significantly with a new estate having been built, and we want to welcome our new neighbours with a great professional display, but this comes at a price.  We are asking local residents - and friends of Newstead and Annesley - all to chip in a bit to fund the event.

If every household contributed £5 we would hit our target.  Please dig deep!
