Rain can’t dampen plot night spirits

Bonfire organisers beat the weather to hold another successful weekend of firework displays and events.

Back with a bang was the display at Brighouse Juniors Football Club. Due to work being delayed until the start of the new year on their all weather pitch, the Hove Edge club was able to hold their annual spectacle.

Georgina Brearley, from the club, said that despite downpours from the previous night, the event went off without a hitch.

“It was a really successful evening. Last year was supposed to our last ever one but due to work being delayed we thought it was a good idea to hold one this year.

“We might not hold a bonfire next year but we are looking at possibly holding a firework display as it is such a well attended and community event.”

Brighouse Rangers held their event on Tuesday which saw a licensed bar, hot food and drinks, sweets & cakes.

The Casa Hotel also held another successful fireworks display on Elland Road with performances from DJ and a laser show across Cromwell Bottom Lake.

Clifton Rangers football club will round off the bonfire celebrations this Sunday at their base on Towngate, Clifton. The gates open at 5.30pm, the bonfire will be lit at 6.30pm and the professional firework display will commence at 7.30pm.

Hot food and drinks will be available.

Prices are family ticket (2 adults and 2 children) £10, adults £4 and children £2.
