Fireworks 2013

Print PDF

Chawton is once again holding its popular bonfire and fireworks event on Saturday 9th of November.

The event is held at Chawton Cricket club, behind the main recreational ground.

We open at 5:30 for food, drinks and sparklers. The bonfire will be lit at 6:00 with the fireworks following once the bonfire is going well and people have stopped arriving.

The event will feature :

  • The Bonfire
  • Free sparkers for children
  • Glow-bands for children
  • Hot and cold drinks (tea, coffee, soft drinks, beer)
  • Hot food - BBQ (courtesy of the scouts), hot dogs & soup
  • The fireworks
  • First Aid with St Johns Ambulance

As per last year, we will have plenty of people serving food and drinks, plus we've provide plenty of time to get your food and drink before the main event.

We hope you enjoy our fireworks night and would like to stress that the event is funded solely by donations on the day, so please give generously so that we can continue to run this event in future years. We recommend a donation of £5-£10 per adult (accompanied children free) - but you are very welcome to donate more. The more you give, the bigger the spectacle we can provide next year.

Limited free parking is provided in the village car park, on-street and in the dead end past the school. Please do not park in the pub car park unless you are planning to eat there. As parking is limited in the village, please consider walking or car sharing where possible. Please park considerately and do not block the main road or move the bollards as we need to maintain emergency vehicle access.

Pedestrian access is via the village car park by the Pub and not the entrance opposite the school as the other bridge is currently damaged and not expected to be replaced in time.

If you wish to bring your own sparklers, these must be lit in the designated area - both for safety reasons for others and to help minimise the clear up the following day.

If you have materials for the bonfire, please take these to "Simons strip" (by the stream). Please remove any exposed nails or screws. no plastics or glass please.

We are building the bonfire during the morning from about 9:00am and our annual clear-up takes place from 9:00 on the Sunday morning, all are welcome to come along and help. Its a great way to meet local people and help the community.
