Fireworks fun lights up party
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.
