I know I plugged it a couple of days ago, but Walsall Park Rangers are still in need of pallets to build the bonfire for the Holland Park Fireworks event, scheduled to take place this Saturday evening. If you can help them, please do get in touch – Brownhills Bonfire is always a cracking night out for all the family, so you’d be supporting the community!

Walsall Council said:
Park rangers have reignited their plea for hundreds of wooden pallets as they count down to the second of the borough’s bonfires this weekend.
Following last weekend’s successful bonfire at King George V Playing Fields in Bloxwich, it’s the turn of Holland Park in Brownhills this Saturday 2 November 2013.
Gates open at 6pm, with the bonfire lit at 7pm and a firework display from 8pm-8.20pm.
Councillor Anthony Harris, portfolio holder for leisure and culture with Walsall Council Coalition, said: “There may have been stormy weather on the way but that didn’t dampen the spirits of the thousands of people who turned out to Bloxwich on Saturday night.
‘It was another successful event with a fantastic fireworks display that everyone enjoyed. Now our park rangers are gearing up to do it all over again at Brownhills.’
Admission is £4 for adults, £1 for children and free for under fives. Food and children’s rides are available
There is limited car parking for £1 and car park entry is off The Parade. Pedestrians can use Chester Road North and The Parade.
For safety reasons people are asked not to bring their own fireworks or sparklers. No alcohol is allowed and under 14s must be accompanied by an adult.
Meanwhile, any businesses that can donate and deliver wooden pallets to the rangers are being urged to make contact.
The fires are so huge they take hundreds and hundreds of wooden pallets to build.
Anyone who can help with pallets is asked to contact the council’s senior park rangers on 07736 388409 or 07831 157543.
The final bonfire this season will be at the Green Flag Award-winning Willenhall Memorial Park on Saturday 9 November 2013.
