Reed Bonfire Night

Saturday 6 November

UPDATE Reed welcomed up to 800 visitors on Saturday 6 November for the community bonfire and fireworks - far more than had been expected or than had attended similar events at Reed in the past. Despite lengthy queues for the barbecue and the cricket club bar everyone was very patient. People were also very generous and the combination of donations to the bucket collection on the night, contributions on our JustGiving page, other donations and proceeds from food sales means we have well exceeded our “break-even” target and the financial future of the event is secure, at least for the next couple of years. Thank you to all the volunteers who have helped with the event and to all who supported it in any way. Reed Parish Council presents a community Bonfire Night event on Saturday 6 November on Reed Green. As well as a firework display and a bonfire, you’ll be able to enjoy drinks from the Cricket Club bar and a barbecue. Admission is free - but remember this is a crowdfunded event. Please give generously to the bucket collections on the night. Donations and the proceeds of food sales go into a pot to enable the event to go ahead next year, so we need to break even. We've made it easy to donate by launching a JustGiving page. If you can, please send us a few quid. Or you could drop in a cheque payable to Reed Parish Council to any member of the Council. Thank you to those who have already donated. 6.00 pm Event opens - licensed bar and barbecue available 6.45 pm Firework display 7.00 pm Bonfire lit Timings are approximate. IMPORTANT Covid Remember that Covid-19 is still with us. Please give everyone space, and use the hand sanitser that will be provided near the barbecue. If there’s a queue for food, please stand a safe distance behind the next person in the queue. It would be a courtesy to wear a face mask when ordering food. You could help us all by taking a lateral flow test within the 48 hours before attending the event. Please do not attend if you are showing symptoms or test positive. General safety We love fireworks. But please do not bring your own fireworks - even sparklers - to the event. More injuries are caused by sparklers than any other kind of fireworks. Sparklers and crowds do not mix. Please follow any directions given to you by the marshals on the night. They are there for your safety. Please return to this page often to check for the latest news and any changes to the arrangements. Many thanks to the Cricket Club and to all the volunteers who have made the event possible.
