Yee­haw bon­fire night

Buckinghamshire Advertiser - - FIREWORKS SPECIAL -

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!”
