Thankyou for all your kind offers of wood, catering and things that glow for Lindfield’s Bonfire Night this year. I can confirm that we now have our full quota of both for the 5th!

For those concerned about hedgehog & wildlife welfare, we at Lindfield build our bonfire on the day of our celebration.
