Kirdford Bonfire Night 2011

Well the crowds gathered, around the bonfire, on Kirdford Green, the pyre had been lit and the sausages were on the spit.  Luckily the skies were clear, with a slither of moon to light your way.  Children had smiling faces as they swung sparklers, creating shapes in the air.

It was a good evening for socialising with other villagers and catching up with friends, children made good use of wellies and puddles, sausages ina bun, doughnuts and toffee apples were available; the Foresters Arms were prepared with lots of staff behind the bar.

Once the fireworks started, a hush went over the crowd and everyone was mesmerised for about 10 minutes, under a constant barrage of colors and noise.

Well done to the Parish Council and all the volunteers for organising a great event, it will be interesting to see how much was raised for this years festivities.  Not as many turned up this year, possibly because it was held a day early due to overbooking of the firework company.
