Another successful fundraiser and the crocuses are planted!
Bradley Stoke Rotary Club were pleased to be invited to provide a barbecue tent at the Bradley Stoke Town Council fireworks again this year and we had a busy, but successful, time.
We saw a much greater number of customers than usual which took us somewhat by surprise - our sincere apologies if you were in the queue and had to wait while we struggled to keep up with demand! However we hope that everyone enjoyed their hot-dogs and burgers and we raised over £1000 which we will use to continue supporting local good causes.
Some of our members were already suffering aching joints from planting this year's Rotary Wheel which is on Brook Way - keep an eye out for the Wheel when the bulbs flower in the spring!!
As always, we invite new members to join us at our meetings at the Hilton Doubletree hotel in Bradley Stoke, 1st and 3rd Wednesdays of the month, 6.45-7.00 pm
REMEMBER THE FIREWORKS CODE
Only buy fireworks marked bs7114 and don't drink alcohol if setting off fireworks.
Keep fireworks in a closed box and follow the instructions on each firework.
Light them at arm's length, using taper and stand well back.
Never go near a firework that has been lit, if it hasn't gone off, it could explode.
Never put fireworks in your pocket or throw them.
Always supervise children around fireworks.
Light sparklers one at a time and wear gloves and never at a firework display.
Never give sparklers to a child under five.
Keep pets indoors.
