Overbury Fireworks and Bonfire Night

A big thank you to everyone who helped make the Overbury Fireworks and Bonfire Night on Sunday evening such a success.

Our special thanks to Bruce for the fireworks, Martyn and the Overbury Farms team for building the bonfire, Tod, Harry and James Philips for assisting with the lighting and setting up all the tables for the food, David, Toff and John for collecting over £500 for the Village Hall in their bucket collection and the Friends of Overbury School for providing refreshments (they sold out after the 250th hot dog).

The fireworks were outstanding (the photos from Ant Sanger-Davies - tiny image files so only give a little of their impact) and the hotdogs and mulled wine really hit the spot on such a chilly night, although the fire also gave off quite a bit of heat!

Thank you also to the children from Overbury First School who carved a row of beautiful pumpkins to help light the way down School Lane.

And of course, our congratulations to Frazer Loveday, who won the competition for the best guy and whose prize was to light the bonfire !
