Bonfire Night



It's the season for bonfire parties and there have been organised events with firework displays during the weekend.  However, November 5th is the traditional evening for The Bonfire Night. It's also a time of the year when there's usually someone in the family who's feeling 'under the weather' and this year no-one was tempted to go far or stay out late.  For the first time one of the public houses at the top of the village hosted an evening in the end of the garden which backs onto the Common so all we had to do was to walk there and sit and watch for a while. It also started at 6 p.m. so a better event for local families with young children.





There were a few fireworks, but it was the bonfire which was the main event.

  3. I'm glad you were able to enjoy the bonfire simply by going up your hill. Bonfire Night sounds like an interesting and fun tradition.

  4. I always think it is a shame that Bonfire night is in November, fireworks in the summer months are so much more fun.
