Kibworth Firework Display
The Annual Rotary Bonfire and Fireworks went ahead on Saturday 2 November despite the weather.
The firework display was put on by Hi5 Fireworks again this year www.hi5-fireworks.com.
Dave Rockman and his team arrive in the morning to set up a high tech spectacular display that always wows the crowd. No hand-held tapers these days, it’s all electronic!
We were very lucky with the weather, which earlier in the day looked dire! Many other displays were cancelled and the poor weather certainly kept numbers down, 400 less than last year. The profit of £1,700 is excellent, under the circumstances.
Refreshments, hot dogs and burgers were provided by Kibworth Scouts, Market Harborough Explorers, parents and leaders. The scouts were also on hand to help the Rotarians clear the field on the Sunday.
Kate Foster raised some money for ‘Friends of The Kibworth School’ selling glow sticks, etc, which are always popular.
The Rotary Club are also grateful to Rotarian Nick Lacey who, with his wife Jane, travels down from their home in Yorkshire to coordinate the event.
Thank you too to The Coach & Horses, Kibworth Post Office and Fleckney Library for selling discounted pre-event tickets.
The money raised will be distributed around Kibworth & Fleckney to support Youth Activities.
