Thankyou to all for a fantastic Bonfire Night

Lindfield Bonfire Society wishes to say thankyou to everyone who attended our 4th November Celebration. We were delighted to be joined in our procession by members of Chailey and Burgess Hill Bonfire Societies, Burgess Hill Marching Youth & the Lindfield Scouts.

Despite the rain earlier in the day, there was a huge turnout for our night & we hope our collection will reflect this. The King Edward Hall was filled to capacity for our fancy dress competition, and the streets of Lindfield and the Common were full during the torch lit procession, Bonfire Prayer & lighting of the bonfire before the skies were lit by our Grand Firework display. We thank everyone for the many positive comments on our night.
