Alderney bonfire night at the Butes cancelled

Post by GD on Sun 31 Oct 2010, 11:46 am

Alderney's annual community bonfire night has had to be cancelled because of a lack of funds.
Two fund-raising events in recent months were called off because of problems with the venues.
That left organisers unable to raise the necessary funds for the bonfire and fireworks on Guy Fawkes night at the Butes.
The cub scouts and a St Anne's pub are organising smaller bonfires on the island. (from BBC)

How much does it cost to build a bonfire?
we never had much money as kids but put together and built a bonefire in a neighbours garden and had a few small fireworks ,,people want to much these days .
I love sitting around a bonefire ,mug of hot tea and chatting with others ..might go home stinking of it but well worth it .made many friendships like this with neighbours

Alderney's bonfire night has been saved.

There were fears that it wasn't going to go ahead because of a lack of cash but a mystery benefactor has now stepped forward.

Not only that but there is more good news.

Alderney's Rotary Club has agreed to organise the event for next year.
