THE PHOTO shows the wonderful glow from the Haven Arms Bonfire last night (5th November 2013) which heated and warmed the hundreds of families who had turned out once again to enjoy Guy Fawkes Night and the Fireworks.
Landlord Mark Hawksworth got the fire going nicely, after a first false start – it got lit and then promptly went out again, more bonfire training needed Mark 🙂 – and then the sky was illuminated by the Fireworks!
The Fireworks display was of the usual high standard we’ve come to expect, but faltered a little towards the end – the crescendo of explosive bursts that normally signifies the climax of the occasion was followed by one or two more bursts, which left some people not quite sure if the event had ended or not. But nothing was spoilt, and another marvellous Bonfire Night has been staged at the Haven. And it didn’t rain again!
There was another similar Bonfire Night event taking place last night just ‘up the road’ in The Camerton, Thorngumbald…. we wonder how that event got on? Is the Haven Arms unrivalled crown as the ‘best Bonfire Night in the area’ under threat we ask??
