Mark Bonfire Night in Brownhills
Families are being invited to Remember, Remember the 5th of November at a bonfire at Holland Park, Brownhills, this weekend.
The fire will be lit at 7pm at the park in Chester Road North with a fireworks display from 8pm until 8.20pm.
John Millard, Walsall Council senior park ranger, said: “Hundreds of people come to our bonfires to enjoy a seasonal celebration in a safe environment.
“We had a good turnout in Bloxwich last weekend and we’re looking forward to doing it all over again in Brownhills.”
John added that rangers are still appealing for firms to donate wooden pallets to help stoke up the fire.
“We get through hundreds because our fires are so massive,” he said.
“And once we’ve burnt this weekend’s we’ve got to turn our attention to the third and final bonfire which is in Willenhall Memorial Park, on Saturday 12 November.”
Anyone who is able to donate and deliver pallets should contact senior park rangers John Millard on 07736 388409 or John Morris on 07736 388418.
Food is available at the Brownhills bonfire event along with children’s rides.
Entry is £3 for adults, £1 for children and free for under fives.
For safety reasons visitors are not allowed to bring their own fireworks or sparklers to the event. No alcohol is allowed and under 14s must be accompanied by an adult.
