Bonfire Night 2021
16/10/2021 By Paul Marsh


As was usual pre-lockdown, we will again be holding our annual bonfire and fireworks celebrations at Tedbury camp site on Thursday, November 4th starting at 6:45pm.  This event is open to all family members and friends, so brothers, sisters, grandparents, aunts and uncles are all welcome to join us.


Whilst we will be supplying some fireworks for the event, if you would like to bring some along yourselves to help the evening go with an even bigger bang, that would be very much appreciated. Please hand these to your section leader who will then ensure they are set off safely for all to enjoy.


As is usual, refreshments including Hot Dogs (incl. veggie sausages), Bacon Rolls and hot drinks will be on sale for you to purchase (please note that it will be cash only), with any monies made going towards the cost of the fireworks. 


Additionally, please don't forget we could really do with some help on the Wednesday night (November 3rd) to help build the bonfire and put up the mess tent. We will be on the Cub Field at Tedbury from 6:30pm and if you could bring some wood or pallets along as well if you have any, that would be fantastic,


With a number of our usual volunteers having left over lockdown, we are desperately looking for a few parents and young leaders to help run the catering. It's all fairly straight forward with tasks being for example making the hot drinks, cutting the rolls and putting the sausages/bacon in before passing to the front counter and then helping with taking money and serving the customers.


If you are able to help, please reply and let me know as we need a minimum of 6 people. The event officially starts at 6:45pm so if you can be there for 6:25pm that would give us time to get things ready, allocate tasks and be prepared ready for the rush when the event starts.
