2019 Bonfire and Fireworks Cancelled
It was with a heavy heart that we have decided to cancel this year’s bonfire and fireworks event scheduled for 5 November 2019.
A lot of hard work and preperation goes in through the year to prepare for this event but the weather has this year defeated us.  The ground conditions are such that it is almost impossible to get vehicles on and off.  Any vehicles were also likely to cause a lot of damage to ground from which it would take a long time to recover.  In addition the safety of all those who work at and attend the event is paramount and the boggy conditions meant this made it harder to guarantee this.  The long term weather does not look likely to improve enough to enhance the conditions on the meadow enough to allow us to put the event on.
Other locations were considered as a backup but the logistics not to mention risk assessment, advertising etc meant this was deemed as not being feasible at this late stage.
In addition, this event costs a lot of money to put on, and we have left the decision as late as possible to ensure that the Town Council, the concessions and firework supplier incur no further costs, which they would have had we had we waited any longer and then subsequently cancelled. 
We have built up a large and loyal following for this event over the years and its reputation for a big bonfire and amazing fireworks are rightfully earned, and we are really sorry  that we have had to cancel the 2019 event, however, we hope you appreciate why we have made this decision.  
We will begin planning 2020 event very soon, so if all goes to plan, we will back!
Thank you for your understanding.
