Statement on Behalf of Woking District Rotary Club

“Our thoughts continue to be with those affected by the events of Saturday evening and we’re sorry that the firework display was unable to continue as planned. The site was evacuated at the request of Surrey Police to allow paramedics from South East Coast Ambulance Service (SECAmb) and the air ambulance service to access the site quickly and safely.

“Unfortunately due to contractual reasons and the logistics of providing a refund to all those that attended the event, we are unable to do so. We will however be donating any profits from ticket sales to the Kent, Surrey and Sussex Air Ambulance. We hope visitors will understand that the cancellation of the display was outside of our control and we’d like to apologise once again that the event was unable to go ahead.”
