Our music will be provided by James Emmetts Ragtime Revellers to get your feet tapping if you cant get close to the fire. Stalls serving food and soft drinks are provided as usual by local youth organisations, you will find a variety of goods that should suit all tastes, this is an opportunity for those groups to raise much needed funds to help them provide activities for their members throughout the year. The Fireworks are due to be set off at 7.45 pm by command of the Deputy Mayor by our professional display team from Fireworks Effects who loyally support our event with spectacular displays that just seem to get better every year. There are childrens rides provided by Wm Cole Funfair, some side stalls where Rotarians allow you to pit your skills for a chance of a win. We must thank all of our Supporters who kindly donate money time and effort to help bring this event to our community safely and with good purpose. All of the proceeds do go to local youth organisations helping them deliver their services to the young peopke of our community.All we need now is fair weather and the good people to continue their support which had been shown accross the generations. Many thanks to eveyone and our genetous sponsors who help offset some of the rising costs. Look forward to seeing you there.
