FIREWORKS LIGHT UP
THE DAMP SKY
report by Patrick Trollope
THE night of Saturday, 6 November
2010, started out cold, but dry. Sadly, as the time came close to
setting off the fireworks at the annual Southport Hesketh Round
Table Bonfire, the heavens opened. The display was in aid of
Macmillian Cancer Support and featured a massive bonfire that was
lit by Chloe Nathan and Jake. The funfair was provided by Silcock’s
and had many interesting rides catering for all ages. A competition,
to start the firework display, was won by the Rooney family, who
pressed the big button on the Rock FM stage, to start the display.
This display was then controlled by pyrotechnics from Reaction
Fireworks from Anfield Plain, County Durham. Unfortunately the rain
did hamper some of the display, but it was still very good
considering the conditions. The event did have a few problems
besides the weather, but all in all, this was again another very
good show, and it is fantastic to se Victoria Park being utilised
now throughout the year. Did you go? If you did email us

2 Minute Silence In
MOTORISTS using the Mersey
Tunnels will be asked to observe the two minutes silence on
Thursday, 11 November 2010, Armistice Day. Vehicles travelling
through the tunnels in both directions will be stopped at the booths
at 11am. Councillor Mark Dowd, chair of Merseytravel, said:-
”It is important we remember those who have made the ultimate
sacrifice for their country in two world wars as we should remember
those who continue to make that sacrifice in current conflicts.”
The two minute silence will be repeated at the Mersey Tunnels at
11am on Sunday, 14 November 2010, (Remembrance Sunday).
