Lindfield Bonfire Test Firing 5/11/2018 at 3pm

If you intend to be on Lindfield Common on Monday afternoon, please be aware that there will be a test firing of a firework at 3.00 p.m. The test firing is required 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 of the 5th November please let them know there will be a test firing.

Please accept our thanks for your help in spreading the word!

P.S. We’ll be using something much smaller than in the picture!
