Bonfire Night

Starts: 05 November 2018 18:00
Ends: 05 November 2018 20:00

Location: Old School Field

Beer, cider, food, bonfire and fireworks!

Chis Allcock will once again be building the bonfire.  There is quite an art in getting the fire to burn spectacularly and successfully and without too much smoke.  We appreciate the many offers to take your garden rubbish to put on the fire, but sadly we can not take it all.

Please do not leave material for the bonfire in the School Field or in front of the locked gate.  We always have enough material and too big a bonfire can become a safety issue.  Please put your green waste in your green bins or take it to the recycling centre in Portishead.
