Stone Town Charity Bonfire and Fireworks Committee are planning to end the 2012 ‘events calendar’ on Saturday 3rd November with a bang – in fact, with lots of bangs!
This year’s bonfire and firework display will be held on Westbridge Park on Saturday 3rd November. Gates open to the public at 6pm, the fire will be lit at 7.30pm and the fireworks dispay will start at 8pm.
Admission is £5 for adults and £3 for children, with a family ticket (two adults and up to three children) for £15.
Committee publicity officer Vera Ferrrie said: “2012 has been a wonderful year – we’ve all enjoyed the Diamond Jubilee celebrations, been amazed by the London Olympics and marvelled at the Paralympic Games. So we are determined to round off the year with an even more fantastic bonfire and fireworks display than ever before!”
Stone Town Charity Bonfire and Fireworks is organised entirely by representatives of local community groups and charities and the profits from the event are distributed amongst the local groups and charities. Last year the following groups benefited from the event: Stone Outward Division Girl Guiding; Stone Army Cadet Force; 1st Stone Scout Group; Aston and Little Stoke Scout Group; St Michael’s First School PTA; Stone District Scout Council; North Staffs Basics Accident Doctors; 2nd Stone Scout Group; Stone Stroke Club; Katherine House Hospice; Stone Alzheimer’s Drop in Club; St Michael’s Church Bell Fund British Red Cross, and the Douglas Macmillan Hospice.
