COLD ASHBY FIREWORKS
A Cracking Evening at Cold Ashby!
Once again, Cold Ashby Playing Fields Fireworks, held on 2nd November, was a roaring success. Between 550 and 600 people attended, and everyone said they had a great time at this family-
Our bonfire, which many people in the village helped to build up with wood and garden prunings, was suitably impressive and both lit up the playing fields and helped to keep everybody warm. As always, Roger and Keith Miller put on a display that many professionals would have been very proud of.
The hot food was delicious, and we had a plentiful supply of ale, lager and mulled wine, as well as hot drinks and soft drinks for the kids. Once again, we were delighted to welcome several local groups of cubs, scouts and explorers from the surrounding villages.
The event made £1,200 after the cost of fireworks, food and drinks had been taken into account. For a small community event, this is a fantastic sum which will support the upkeep of Cold Ashby’s playing fields, games area and the children’s playground, all of which is run by volunteers and relies on regular fundraising events to keep the facilities in tiptop condition.
Thank you to our hardworking volunteers and to all those who ventured outside on a chilly November evening to join in the fun. We wish to thank Daventry District Council who also supported our efforts. All in all, another very successful and enjoyable evening.
