A Wonderful Display But Dismal Weather
A big thank you for to everyone who attended the firework display last year on the 2nd November. The display was excellent and as in previous years it was well received from everyone there.
Unfortunately, it was not the best of weather on that day and the attendance to the event was down by a significant amount which reduced the gate takings by more than 50% compared to previous years. We have donated money to a couple of local good causes but not as many or sums we have previously. We believe that from the funds we have and the generous donations from local business that this year’s display can go ahead, but without your support in attending the display we may not be able to continue into future years.
This year the Fireworks Display will be on Saturday November 7th. We will be starting earlier than in previous years with the gates opening at 5.00 pm and the display starting at 6.00pm. We hope that the new times appeal to more residents and that you will make the effort to support this event even if the weather is not so fine.
Over the 26 years that we have been organising the display we have donated over £20,000 to local good causes in and around Shefford. We really hope to be able to continue to support the hard work that so many other organisations do for the community.
Thank you for your support again and we look forward to seeing you on the 7th November this year.
