Fireworks are guaranteed at Halfway
Remember, remember the fifth of November .... or you might miss out on Halfway’s fantastic fireworks display.
The event will take place at North Halfway Community Hall on Thursday, November 5.
Last year’s event proved a real hit and organisers are now hoping to build on that success this year.
Over 600 people attended and the night raised £700 for the 217th Gilbertfield Boys’ Brigade, Partici8 Overton and FlemingtonHallside Parish Church.
The display is run by BB officer Glenn Jamieson, who came up with the idea after a successful BB display in 2013, and Councillor Walter Brogan with volunteers helping out on the night.
No tickets are needed, with organisers asking only for a donation per person on the night. The hall opens 6.30pm with display at 7.30pm.
Fireworks were an annual event in Halfway at the North Halfway Hall for many years with a huge bonfire, but as the years went on things got more costly and health and safety got much tighter.
Started by Mary and Robert Paul as part of the Joint Youth Committee in 1983, this was taken over by the hall committee until 2006 when it was not viable to run due to health and safety requirements.
