Just a quick reminder that Brownhills Bonfire is at Holland Park this Saturday evening (1st November 2014) – the fire will be lit at 7pm and the fireworks kick off at 8pm.

Entry will be £4 for adults and £1 for kids and little ones under 5 get in free.

There will be food and children rides to enjoy, too.

For safety reasons – no fireworks or sparklers. No alcohol allowed. Under 14s must be accompanied by an adult.

With upcoming council cuts, his could well be the last such event in Brownhills, so why not attend and make this one to remember?

Walsall Council are still appealing for pallets – can you help?

Borough businesses can help the borough’s next two bonfires go with a bang – by answering park rangers’ pleas for hundreds of pallets to build the massive blazes. 

More than 3,000 visitors enjoyed the first council bonfire of the season at King George V Playing Fields in Bloxwich on Saturday night and events are being held at Brownhills and Willenhall over the next two weekends.

But rangers need hundreds of wooden pallets to be donated and delivered to help them stage the popular events.

John Millard, Walsall Council senior ranger, said: “Bloxwich bonfire was brilliant on Saturday with more than 3,000 visitors and we want to put on just as good a show at Holland Park, Brownhills, and Willenhall Memorial Park.

‘We desperately need hundreds and hundreds of wooden pallets because the fires we build are so huge. In previous years we’ve had a great response from supermarkets, warehouses and factories which have all rallied round to donate and deliver to us.

‘We’re asking for the same support this year too as we look forward to giving Walsall residents of all ages a safe bonfire night to remember.’

If anyone can donate and deliver wooden pallets they are asked to contact John on 07736 388409 or Clean and Green Services on 01922 654893.

Pallets need to be delivered by the day before each event to allow time for the fires to be built.

The bonfire at Holland Park, Brownhills, is on Saturday 1 November, with Green Flag Award-winning Willenhall Memorial Park on Saturday 8 November.

Bonfires are lit at 7pm with firework displays at 8pm. Admission is £4 for adults, £1 for children and free for under fives.
