Latest Chairman's Blog - Nigel Champion
I wanted to take the opportunity to thank all members that assisted with the fireworks event, which was a great success.
I must firstly say thanks and well done to those management committee members who either dialled into or attended (acknowledging that some were unavailable owing to work or other commitments) the meetings that were arranged prior to the event to decide if it was going to go ahead as the weather forecast leading up to it was awful.
I would then like to thank all those that assisted during the day to get ready for the event, some of whom stayed there for the entire duration. A memorable moment from the work that was carried out in the morning was that the oldest person there (Ken Todd) climbed to the top of the bonfire to make sure that the wood was placed as well as possible; several people commented on how good it was to see us following tradition by having a Guy at the top (sorry Ken I'm only kidding)!
Finally I'd like to thank all those who attended and supported the event from the local community; it was great to see you and we really do appreciate your support and I hope they you all had an enjoyable time.
