Bonfire & Grand
Fireworks Display in Southport!
Southport and Hesketh Round Table put on one what was a
fantastic show for all ages. The event really heated up as
the event fully started at 6:30pm with the massive Bonfire
The heat was amazing as Phillipa Park and her family, from
Southport, set alight the massive fire. "This has been
the best ever show we have put on." one of the
members of the Round Table told us and this was echoed in
statements we took all around Victoria Park.
There was appetising food and drink, side shows and even a
Fairground, put on by Southport based Silcocks, which was
fantastically well thought out, with rides for all ages and
sizes. The commentary on the night given was by Dune 107.9.
At 8pm, the fireworks lit up the sky.
As the multicolour explosions shot across the cold clear
night, enormous speakers were pumping music out. The match
of fireworks to music was very well balanced.
This was a superb effort and was, as one spectator put it:-
"Well worth standing in the cold for and well worth
the entrance fee!"
It is hoped
that the cash raised will go a long way this year towards
helping the North West Air Ambulance and also Queenscourt
Table has asked us to say that they would like to thank all
who came and would especially like to thank the many
volunteers who helped on the night and over the run up to
the big event. They also would like to thank St John
Ambulance, and their many sponsors. Special thanks has to go
to Rooftop Solutions and Consultancy Services Ltd for
sponsoring the Fireworks; also to George Roberts for
supplying the Fencing and Pavementshield as their
sponsorship of the Bonfire.
from all of us, here at Southport Reporter. As another
spectator said:- "We cannot wait to see what happens
next year... This night has been fantastic, trouble free and
extremely friendly, yet again."
