Traditional Bonfire Night
It is with a very heavy heart that we must inform you that at this week's meeting of the Littlehampton bonfire society committee it was decided by vote that we have to cancel this year’s Littlehampton torchlight parade,
mammoth bonfire and firework display on 26th October.
This decision was not taken lightly. Everyone on the committee was filled with sadness at this decision.
We have all worked extremely hard to work towards this year’s bonfire night. And let us be clear, we all hope that next year we will be back as strong as ever! We plan to continue with all fund raising events and actively seek for more members and more volunteers so that we may continue.
The reasons we have had to cancel are mostly to do with our current inability to put on a safe event because of the following:
· Insufficient persons to build the bonfire
· Insufficient persons to guard the bonfire
· Insufficient marshals to marshal the event
· Insufficient persons to help clear up after the event
· Very few entries for the parade
· Very few charity collectors
If having read this you would like to come forward to offer help for next year’s bonfire celebrations then please let us know.
I am sure it would cheer us all if we felt we were in a stronger position earlier to be able to plan ahead.
