Events Diary: Bonfire Night


We have loaded the video taken from the scaffolding to YouTube. This is the best way of taking in the evening and also see our Guy getting put on the bonfire. Although it was a cold evening, people had wrapped up warm and came to enjoy themselves.

It will play using YouTube technologies. Full screen mode is available.


To be honest we weren't sure whether people would come to a bonfire in The COurtyard or would prefer to go to one of the bigger, organised events at The Racecourse and the likes. We weren't disappointed as the local community wanted to spend it together, with people they know, in a safe environment.

John - our resident pyromaniac and a volunteer - was in charge of the bonfire. We think he got it spot on between entertainment and safety. And he didn't burn down The Stables either - result!
