Bonfire Night

Bonfire Night
Bonfire NightNov 8th | Playing Field St Fillans

Bonfire Night will be held in the St Fillans playing field on Friday 8th  November 2019.

Come along and enjoy the annual fireworks display.

Please, for safety reasons, do not bring any of your own fireworks or sparklers to the display, but bring along some change as the normal “bucket collection” will be made to help defray some of the costs which are being borne by The St Fillans Community Trust.

The new Play Park, that is now in the playing field area, is close to the bonfire site. After discussion, it is felt that it will be safe to hold the fireworks at the usual site. However, the bonfire will need to be somewhat smaller than previously but still of a reasonable size.

The committee would therefore ask for donations of wood to build the bonfire from the village. We feel that we need to ask that no green wood/leaf cuttings, plastic covered wood and mattresses /carpet should not be put on the fire both to allow a smaller bonfire to burn successfully and to minimise any pollution from noxious gases released.

The committee looks forward to your support in this and hopes for a successful display this year. 

To this end we would like to ask for donations of wood for the bonfire to start collection from around the 28th October at the usual site. It would be helpful if donations could be taken over but if you are unable, please contact Pete Rickhus on 281 and we will arrange uplift.

The Bonfire

If adding wood, please leave near the bonfire site, not on the actual site.

Please DO NOT block the 4 entry channels.

We would also ask for help to raise a marquee and prepare the site in the 48hrs before the display exact time being weather forecast dependant. I will make a request for this help hopefully 24-48 hrs before.

Kind Regards
