Fire­works fun lights up party

The Peterborough Evening Telegraph - - Neighbourhood News - By MATTHEW REVILLE matthew.reville@pe­ter­bor­oughto­

A SPEC­TAC­U­LAR fire­works dis­play meant that Bret­ton’s Christ­mas cel­e­bra­tions got off to a bang last week.

The 14-minute spec­ta­cle was part of the Bret­ton Christ­mas Fes­ti­val, and raised money for the Lit­tle Mir­a­cles char­ity last Fri­day, De­cem­ber 9.

It was or­gan­ised by PRC Fire­works’ Paul Chis­nall, who chose the char­ity for the work they have done to help his daugh­ter Re­becca (3), who has spina bi­fida.

The fire­works were set off at the Lions Rugby Club in Bret­ton Gate, where there was a se­lec­tion of stalls, rides and even the chance to meet Fa­ther Christ­mas.

There were around 500 at the event and they were treated to a spec­tac­u­lar dis­play that il­lu­mi­nated the sky while a back­drop of Christ­mas mu­sic played in the back­ground.

Paul said: “It was quite a small turnout but ev­ery­one had a great night.

“We did it for Lit­tle Mir­a­cles be­cause they are a re­ally worth­while char­ity, and they have helped our daugh­ter.

“The fire­works dis­play was a py- ro­mu­si­cal set to Christ­mas mu­sic, and it went on for around 14 min­utes.

“There were £3,000 worth of fire­works and most of them were do­nated from whole­salers who put in to help out the char­ity.

“We hope to come back again for an­other dis­play on Bon­fire Night next year.”

Paul’s com­pany PRC Fire­works put on dis­plays all over the coun­try for peo­ple work­ing on all range of bud­gets from hand-fired to com­puter con­trolled py­rotech­nics.
