Fireworks 2010

Chawton is once again holding its popular bonfire and fireworks event on Saturday 6th of November.

The event is held at Chawton Cricket club, behind the main recreational ground. Access and viewing is via the recreational ground opposite the school, or from the village car park. The bonfire will be lit at 6:30 with the fireworks following once the bonfire is going well.

 The event will feature :

  • The Bonfire
  • Free sparkers for children
  • Hot and cold drinks (tea, coffee and a selection of soft drinks)
  • Hot food - hot dogs & soup
  • The fireworks

Following last years event, we will have more people serving food and drinks to reduce the queues.

We hope you enjoy our fireworks night and would like to stress that the event is funded solely by donations on the day, so please give generously so that we can continue to run this event in future years. We recommend a donation of £5-£10 per adult (accompanied children free) - but you are very welcome to donate more. The more you give, the bigger the spectacle we can provide next year.

If you wish to bring your own sparklers, these must be lit in the designated area - both for safety reasons for others and to help minimise the clear up the following day.

Free parking is provided in the village car park, the village hall car park and on-street. Please do not park in the pub car park unless you are planning to eat there, nor on the village green, since we need to maintain access during the event for emergency access.

If you have materials for the bonfire, please take these to "Simons strip" (by the stream)

We are building the bonfire during the morning from about 9:30am and our annual clear-up takes place from 9:00 on the sunday morning, all are welcome to come along and help.

 

Beating the Bounds 2010

St Swithun the patron saint of rain was kind to us on Saturday, 2 October. The previous day the skies had opened and there was unrelenting rain; the day after the walk was not much better. Consequently we were extremely lucky to complete our walk, with only a few drops of rain near the end.
