Firework Display A Sparkling Success

An estimated two to three hundred people showed up at Broadwindsor’s Cricket ground this evening.

A set of air pods in a case were found and can be retrieved from the Knapp Inn – please contact Lesley on 01308 862408.

Entry was free but volunteers rattled their collection buckets enthusiastically.  Special thanks must go to the small group of children, who found a five pound note lying in the ground and added it to the donation bucket.

Huge thanks to the organisers, sponsors, volunteer helpers and of course to you, the public for showing up! 🙂 We look forward to this annual event at the Cricket Club next year.
