Allington and Boscombe Bonfire Night celebrations

First Time Bonfire Night

Over 180 residents and friends attended the Allington and Boscombe Bonfire Night celebrations on Wednesday 3rd November at The Old Rectory.

This was the first time that the village had enjoyed their own bonfire and fireworks party, organised by the Village Life and Youth Committees. Dave Willis and John Hill had spent many weeks building and preparing the bonfire that was almost 30ft high!

A Best Guy competition resulted in seven Guys atop the bonfire with a 25 gift voucher going to the best won by Shirley Willis and her grandchildren.

Residents arrived on site from 6pm onward welcomed by the aroma of mulled wine, hot dogs and soup. After the bonfire and 20 minute fireworks display, funds for future village development (part of our Parish Plan) were boosted with a raffle. Including donations, the evening raised 632.
