Urgent Call for Help with 2017 Bonfire

Written by Administrator on .


The Cocking Bonfire and Fireworks night will be on Saturday 28th October this year.  If you have enjoyed this event in previous years we need your help. In order for it to go ahead we rely solely on volunteers from the village. If we do not have enough volunteers we legally cannot run the night. Currently we do not have enough to proceed and if we do not get any more the fireworks will be cancelled this year.  We therefore would implore you to lend a hand and help keep this great community event running.  There are many jobs to be done - some large and some small and any help is appreciated. Some of the jobs you could help with are:

  • Building the bonfire the weekend before the event
  • Helping to set up tables, make mulled wine and get ready for the event
  • Collecting donations at the gate
  • Making cakes to sell
  • Helping behind the bar selling cakes and drinks
  • Marshaling whilst the fireworks are on
  • Tidying up the hall afterwards

This is a lot of work for just a handful of people, but the more that offer to help the less there is to do.  If you can help us with anything at all, please get in touch with us using the details below.
