On behalf of the Committee of Lindfield Bonfire Society I wish to say a big thank you to everyone who supported our 125th Bonfire Night celebration.
A massive amount of work goes into making our night happen – the fund raisers, those on pre-night planning & preparations, setting up on the day, support on the night and all the post display clear down & clean up.
The support of our Society members, fellow bonfire societies and the local community is what allows us to put on Lindfield Bonfire night and we are very appreciative of the effort everyone puts in. We hope you all enjoyed the evening as much as we did!
Important Information from Lindfield Bonfire Society……Bonfire and fireworks are confirmed as going ahead tonight.
Please be aware for public safety, and in order we can put on our event, we have had to fence off a significant area of the common. Where possible please try to stay off the grass and stick to hard standing. We expect large crowds so please keep safety in mind and also please no fireworks including sparklers. Have a safe and enjoyable evening.
Bonfire Night is finally here! I’m sure you’ll appreciate this is a busy day for us so we will be unable to answer individual email queries about our night, but all the details you should need can be found in our This Years Bonfire page & we will keep our Facebook page updated as to what is happening.
Wishing you all a safe and enjoyable Bonfire Night wherever you chose to spend it!
The money raised from our street collection on the night is in aid of local children’s charities: Chestnut Tree House, Court Meadow Riding for the Disabled, Cleft Lip & Palate Association (C.L.A.P.A.), Kangaroos and Orchard House.
If you enjoy our night on the 5th, please show your appreciation by digging deep into your pockets and donating into the collecting buckets that will be out and about before, during and after our event which are collecting in aid of these charities .
If you intend to be on Lindfield Common on Tuesday afternoon, please be aware that there will be conducting three separate firework test firings during the day and evening. These are scheduled to take place at 3p.m., 5p.m. and again at 7p.m. These are needed to allow our pyro team to assess wind speed and direction in preparation for our evening firework display and so ensure the display is safe and enjoyable for those attending .
If you are a dog owner, or know some one who is likely to be walking their dog around the Common during the afternoon and early evening of the 5th November please let them know about the time of these test firings.
Please accept our thanks for your help in spreading the word!
