BONFIRE NIGHT at the Haven Arms has become a real community event in Hedon with a reputation for providing a spectacular display.
This year a few people were disappointed at what seemed a rather small bonfire waiting to be lit compared with previous years – “It’s an austerity bonfire!” somebody posted perhaps rather unkindly on Facebook! But in lighting the bonfire, Landlord Mark Hawksworth announced that the smaller bonfire this year would be compensated by an even bigger fireworks display!
Mark was true to his word – a truly fantastic fireworks display followed! We’ve captured the last 50 seconds or so on the video below. What the video doesn’t really convey, is the massive “Wow!” and roar of approval at the final firework burst!
Thanks to Mark, Alison and the staff at the Haven for keeping us fed and watered and providing a great night! And let’s not forget the Army Cadets who provide the stewarding and the First Aiders on call, and the police on duty, and the fireworks team themselves, who all help to create a great atmosphere every year – and it hasn’t rained on a Bonfire Night at the Haven in the last four years!
Best photo of the night… so far (can you send us a better one!?)… I call it the Jewel in the Haven Fireworks Crown… I was never good at names!
