The weather was so kind for our firework display, which was, as last year, a great success and raised funds for Broadwindsor Cricket Club and Broadwindsor Comrades Hall.
We are grateful to our sponsors, Symonds and Sampson, Broadwindsor House Care Home, Cllr Simon Christopher and The Knapp Inn.
As a result of the evening the Cricket Club and Broadwindsor Comrades Hall have shared the profit on the night, each receiving £681.65.
My thanks to the cricket club and their helpers who ran the bar and BBQs.and the village school PTA who had a stall raising money too.
I also want to thank my team of volunteers who helped set up and light the fireworks, and kept the spectators safe on their way to and from the cricket field. Also to Dorothy Rowe and Margery Hookings who successfully rattled their donation buckets and to Sara Dyke, our First Aider.
My thanks also to P H Hardwill for lending us their tower light, Shane and Ellen Pym for lending us their generator, John Staff and Martin Burt for their tower safety lights and Stefan Nikolov for the use of his safety equipment.
And finally, a massive thank you to all the spectators who came along and enjoyed the evening. We hope to see you all again at next year’s Broadwindsor Firework Display.
