IMPORTANT – Change of plan for Bonfire Night

Post today’s site inspection of the Common, Lindfield Bonfire Society regret to inform that for safety reasons we have been forced to cancel both our firework display and bonfire for the 5th. This is because the extreme waterlogging of the Common which prevents us from operating safely and is a real danger for people attending a large public gathering. This is not a decision we have taken lightly and is obviously a great disappointment to us all, however the safety of all those attending our event must take priority.

It’s not all doom and gloom though. The good news is that we will still be holding our torch lit procession round the village and also our Children’s Fancy Dress competition at the King Edward Hall. The Guy will still be outside Glyn Thomas & Son on the Highstreet during the day with bonfire programmes. The revised schedule can be seen on the This Years Bonfire event page.

This will still be a great event so please do come and support us during the day and on the evening so we can ensure next year goes off with a bang.
