Fire­works are guar­an­teed at Half­way

Rutherglen Reformer - - News -

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.
