A sparkling night at Bonfire

I’d just like to write and say how impressed I was with the success of Eastbourne Bonfire Society’s event last Saturday.

It was enormous fun, the route was packed from beginning to end and the fireworks were genuinely superb.

Well done to all the hard-working stewards on the day, along with our own incredibly determined Eastbourne Committee (they know it was a long fight to get the bonfire procession off the ground!).

All the societies did our town proud and I’m 100 per cent sure this event is going to continue growing hugely over the coming years. Brilliant!
