On January 3rd of this year we all suddenly reacted to the fact that no firework display took place – at the time with no notice having been given to tell all of the problem. That the previous funders had decided they could not continue.
Accordingly I posted a piece seeking a reaction to this and the hope that a good number of residents would rally to the cause and fund this years display.The response was excellent and over 160 folks donated sums of varying size. This enabled me to go to Blitz Fireworks Company of Crewe- the company that fires for ASET and Party on the Park and Bonfire night.
John Malam promised me a big and better display as I presented him with the money and we will present a great village show at the midnight hour.
I hope all with be out as the clock strikes 12 and we enter 2019 – a momentous year for Great Britain as we cast ourselves adrift from Europe on the 29th of March. Any surplus funds will be our seed corn for the display next year.
