Yeehaw bonfire night
VILLAGERS donned their cowboy hats for a themed bonfire night. Fulmer held its celebration in King George’s Field, Fulmer Common Road, on Saturday.
About 300 villagers wore cowboy hats and sheriff badges to tie in with the Wild West theme.
The bonfire was set up like a gunpowder store, and a girl won the chance to blow it up using a mine plugger.
The clubhouse became a saloon, with a volunteer making a saloon-style door, and the barbecue stand was the chuck wagon.
The local school arranged for two ‘bad guys’ and two horses to be burnt.
There was a barn dance wi Bodgers Wood Band after the fireworks.
Roy MacMillan, one of the organisers, said: “Everyone said they loved it and got into the spirit of it. “The stands and s were great, d we had actors alking about as owboys.
“The little girl who blew up the onfire was so cited. Though I think
eople nearby unaware we were having a bonfire were a bit surprised!”
