“A Very Spectacular Finale …”HEMINGFORD GREY – September 11, 2017
We are sad to announce that it will be the finale for the Fireworks in Hemingford event to be held in the Big field off London Road St Ives on Saturday November 4, 2017. The event has been held for over fifty years and more than twenty at this site. Four committee members are retiring too, and one in particular who was instrumental in starting it all those years ago is calling it a day. No price increases, no health and safety issues or insurance costs are the reason for our decision, just we are ageing volunteers and our time has come to retire.
We do not want the event to “die” but need a new village site and volunteers to keep it going for another fifty years. Should you know of an alternative site and or be willing to volunteer, please contact us on the email below.
The loyalty of our supporters, ticket sellers, service groups and volunteers have given us over the years has been awesome. This site finale will be an extravaganza of fireworks and, as usual, a big bonfire to warm the night. There will be food and drinks, children’s funfair and music for all to enjoy. Tickets will be available from the beginning of October at our usual outlets. All information needed will be posted on our website and Facebook.
We are looking forward to welcoming everyone and raising lots of money to give away to local not-for-profit groups, charities and service groups, for the last time. Saturday November 4, 2017, gates open at 5p.m. Come, celebrate our success and enjoy the family fun.
