Bonfire Night Fireworks

5th November -Bonfire Night Fireworks

 

Each year the Beverley Lions Club organise their annual Fireworks Display on Guy Fawkes Night, on the 5th November and will take place as usual on the Beverley Westwood adjacent to Westwood Road.

 

Beverley Lions Club would like to thank people in Beverley and surrounding areas for their generosity at last years Bonfire and Fireworks event on the Westwood.
This year we hope the bucket collection will cover the costs of the fireworks for 2014 and will go some way towards next year’s event.
The Bonfire will be lit by the Mayor of Beverley & Lions President at 7.15pm, and the fireworks begin at 7.45pm.
The clean up next day will need as many volunteers as possible, due to the litter left behind, so if you can help please come along after 9am.

We would like to thank all those who give us their time to collect and to help on the evening – the Mayor and Beverley Town Council, the Police, the Pasture Masters, St. John’s Ambulance, Addplant Ltd, Nigel Rice Transport, MKM Beverley, Jewsons Beverley, Travis Perkins Beverley, Humber Colts, Forces personnel from Leconfield, David Oxtoby (for the straw bale), and to the stall-holders and W. Boyes Ltd, for their donations.

This is a service which the Lions Club is pleased to provide for the town, with help from the local community.

Last year the Bonfire which is provided by the Beverley Town Council was lit at 7-15 pm by the Mayor. This was followed by the fireworks display at 7.45pm by a national fireworks company who specialize in providing displays of this kind in a safe and professional manner.

 

 

 

 

 

 

The weather was fine so that parents and children were be able to fully enjoy this spectacular fireworks display, which was free of charge and paid for entirely from the Beverley Lions Club Charity Fund. As usual a bucket collection was held in order to help pay towards the cost of over £5000 for providing the fireworks and everyone was asked to give generously as an appreciation of the evening’s fabulous display. A good collection ensured that the event will take place again next year.

 

 

 

 

 

 

As in past years all of the usual supporting vending stalls etc were present to give the evening a truly great atmosphere and in order to ensure the safety of everyone, it was preferred that no one brings their own fireworks. Every effort was made by the Beverley Lions to ensure the bonfire and fireworks display was carried out in a safe manner and that no accidents occured and everyone was asked to stay outside the roped off areas at all times. In case of any unforeseen accidents, the St Johns Ambulance Brigade was in attendance during the course of the evening.

 

The Beverley Lions Club is looking forward to providing this free spectacular evening of traditional entertainment for everyone again next year in the Beverley area.

 

Clearing Up, The morning after.

As they have done for the past 30 years, but as with events of this type, the cleaning up afterwards is essential and many people came along to help on the Tuesday morning at 9-00am, which was most welcome.
